Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you'll be able to see farther.
J. P. Morgan
The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see.
I have always thought of poems as stepping stones in one's own sense of oneself. Every now and again, you write a poem that gives you self-respect and steadies your going a little bit farther out in the stream. At the same time, you have to conjure the next stepping stone because the stream, we hope, keeps flowing.
I also tell them that your education can take you way farther than a football, baseball, track, or basketball will - that's just the bottom line.

Go as far as you can see; when you get there you'll be able to see farther.

The farther reason looks the greater is the haze in which it loses itself.
Johann Georg Hamann
We find them smaller and fainter, in constantly increasing numbers, and we know that we are reaching into space, farther and farther, until, with the faintest nebulae that can be detected with the greatest telescopes, we arrive at the frontier of the known universe.
Edwin Powell Hubble
Nothing is farther than earth from heaven; nothing is nearer than heaven to earth.

Sometimes you get a glimpse of a semicolon coming, a few lines farther on, and it is like climbing a steep path through woods and seeing a wooden bench just at a bend in the road ahead, a place where you can expect to sit for a moment, catching your breath.
I've reached a point in my life where it's the little things that matter... I was always a rebel and probably could have got much farther had I changed my attitude. But when you think about it, I got pretty far without changing attitudes. I'm happier with that.

For to tempt and to be tempted are things very nearly allied - whenever feeling has anything to do in the matter, no sooner is it excited than we have already gone vastly farther than we are aware of.
Catherine the Great

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
