Would you help me with these two expressions?
Far away from
What is the difference between them?
Thank you very much.
It depends on context. 'He's not angry but he's far from happy' and 'He grew up far away from his mother' are both more appropriate than '...he's far away from angry' (which is just wrong) and '...far from his mother' (which isn't wrong, but sounds less right to my ear). I suspect that 'away' is usually inserted when 'far' refers to actual distance, but often their contexts make them interchangeable.
