Success is more dangerous than failure, the ripples break over a wider coastline.
Perhaps I have a wider range than I'd given myself credit for.
Kinkade's paintings are worthless schmaltz, and the lamestream media that love him are wrong. However, I'd love to see a museum mount a small show of Kinkade's work. I would like the art world and the wider world to argue about him in public, out in the open.
If two very different people pool their DNA, they'll create more genetic variety, and their young will come to the job of parenting with a wider array of skills.

The wider world is a click away, but whether we mean to or not, we're usually filtering it out.
While the wider global environment is worrying, we are seeing some positive results in our economic affairs.
Michael D. Higgins
