From time to time some of the folk from the great outside world
had found their way into this fairyland, but all except one had been companions of Dorothy and had turned out to be very agreeable people.
In the big, cold, outside world
people did not invite shaggy men to their homes, and this shaggy man of ours had slept more in hay-lofts and stables than in comfortable rooms.
There are a dozen ways of communicating with the outside world
, and when that's once done, it seems to me that the position of Squire Fentolin of St.
"She was a girl that came here from Kansas, a place in the big, outside World
. She got blown to the Land of Oz by a cyclone, and while she was here the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman accompanied her on her travels."
"And I used to think," she said, "that after all I could only keep you a little time - that presently the voices from the outside world
would come whispering in your ears, and you would steal back again to where the wheels of life were turning."
But little we cared for the gloom and the loneliness of the outside world
; we kept them at bay with the light of the fire and the laughter of our young lips.
John, cooped up in the valley, and absorbed in his work, had had little chance of learning the news of the outside world
during the last twelve years.
It was patent that he brawled, somewhere in that outside world
where he ate and slept, gained money, and moved in ways unknown to them.
As a business investment, yes; for the virtues of the valley were on the eve of being discovered by the outside world
, and no better location for a summer home could be found.
We felt that once beyond it we might look with some little hope of success for a passage to the outside world
They were passing through on their way to the outside world
along the corridors we had just traversed.
And let me tell you, if you have not already realized it, the chances are a thousand to one that not one of us ever will see the outside world
In my contact with people I find that, as a rule, it is only the little, narrow people who live for themselves, who never read good books, who do not travel, who never open up their souls in a way to permit them to come into contact with other souls--with the great outside world
. No man whose vision is bounded by colour can come into contact with what is highest and best in the world.
One great regret we had, and that was to leave our old camp behind us, not only for the sake of the stores which remained there, but even more because we were losing touch with Zambo, our link with the outside world
. However, we had a fair supply of cartridges and all our guns, so, for a time at least, we could look after ourselves, and we hoped soon to have a chance of returning and restoring our communications with our negro.
At the slightest impact of the outside world
upon his consciousness, his thoughts, sympathies, and emotions leapt and played like lambent flame.
