The wording on the door sign at “Images by Fisher” in Holly Hill promises that one need “look no farther” for a unique gift. As I studied and framed this scene, it was the unique grammar that caught my attention. I have often looked no further, though I don’t recall a time when I have looked no farther. So, what’s the difference and is one of these words incorrect for use in this phrase?
In my mind, I think of “farther” as implying a distance not yet traversed, while “further” seems to most often have a place already reached attached to it, as in, “I shall travel no further than this today” vs. “I plan to go farther.”
What are your thoughts, dear reader? In any case, you need “look no further” than the bottom of this post to leave your opinion and comments about this matter or today’s photo.
