All 
   1. The whole quantity, extent, duration, amount, quality, or
      degree of; the whole; the whole number of; any whatever;
      every; as, all the wheat; all the land; all the year; all
      the strength; all happiness; all abundance; loss of all
      power; beyond all doubt; you will see us all (or all of
      us).

"All" as in the entire set of.  "Most" would better fit the definition
you have given.
