I always had this crisis: where do I come from? I was never an insider, never an outsider; I was always in the middle. But it means I never have borders in my head.
Yasmine Hamdan
I don’t feel comfortable as an insider.
John Cho

Perez Hilton

Along with Trump, there are few people, on either the right or the left, who would defend the system. The system is, everyone believes, broken: it’s an insider’s game; it’s totally fixed; it serves itself. Trump codified this into a simple and vivid idea: the swamp.

Riz Ahmed
The great joy of doing ‘The Daily Show’ for me is that I get to sit on the fence between cultures. I am commenting on the absurdity of both sides as an outsider and insider. Sometimes I’m playing the brown guy, and sometimes I’m not, but the best stuff I do always goes back to being a brown kid in a white world.
Aasif Mandvi
Students come away with a clear message about how admissions works: If you have money, connections or ‘insider’ knowledge, you have a leg up. It’s hardly surprising that many students of modest or lower means decide it’s not even worth playing.

I know publishing now more as an author than with occasional peaks inside those elite offices than as an industry insider. It was difficult publishing a novel the first time around, while working behind the scenes, knowing all that has to happen to make a book a success and to still make the leap as an author.
Jennifer Gilmore
Significant officials at publicly traded companies are casually and cavalierly engaged in insider trading. Because insider trading has as one of its elements communication, it doesn’t take rocket science to realize it’s nice to have the communication on tape.

Stained glass is unique from the outside, but as a painting insider, I know that oil painting’s all about light. And it’s about the depiction of light, the way that it bounces off different types of skin, different landscapes. The mastery of that light is the obsession of most of my painter friends.
Kehinde Wiley
The idea of insider information to me is almost, like, laughable.
Kevin Plank
Insider trading is hard to prove. To be convicted, a person must have bought or sold a stock based on material information that is both unknown to the general public and likely to have had an important effect on a company’s stock price.

Dido Harding

Outsiders often have an insight that an insider doesn’t quite have.

Michael Mann
I’m pretty happy not to be an insider anymore. There’s just no common ground. I don’t know if it’s distrust or that the politics is substantially more partisan than the public. But there’s no pressure to make a grand bargain on fiscal matters, on growth, on anything.
