Farther from the truth

Found in a newspaper: That couldn't be farther from the truth.

Farther is for distance, so, in this case, the truth must be a few miles from here. This sentence should use further, not farther.

That couldn't be further from the truth.

The only limit to your impact

Quotation found online: "The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment." — Tony Robbins

Since Robbins says "imagination and commitment," he should have used limits, not limit.

I realize that some folks will say I'm being too critical. I don't know, but here's my edit.

"The only limits to your impact are your imagination and commitment."
