the words "out of" Out of all the things in the world you wish for, you wish it could be Friday? What does "out of" mean in this sentence? And how to use it?

"out of" means "from among". Your sentence means, "From among all the things in the world you wish for [you would like to have], more than anything else you wish it were Friday. Here are some examples: "Out of all the planets in our solar system, Jupiter is the largest." "The teacher said that out of all her students, Mary works the hardest."
