Can I say all this?
1. Nothing was more far from me than to violate the law.
2. Nothing was more far from me than to offend you.
3. Nothing was more far from me than to interfere in your personal affairs, as/since/because I respected your privacy.
4. Nothing was more far from me than to behave in an unappropriate way.

O.K. let's give me one more try.
1. Nothing was further from me than to violate the law.
2. Nothing was further from me than to offend you.
3. Nothing was further from me than to interfere in your personal affairs, as/since/because I respected your privacy.
4. Nothing was further from me than to behave in an unappropriate way.


or as an additional option:
5. Nothing was further from my mind than to violate the law.
6. Nothing was further from my mind than to offend you.
7. Nothing was further from my mind than to interfere in your personal affairs, as/since/because I respected your privacy.
8. Nothing was further from my mind than to behave in an unappropriate way.

I think you are looking for:

Let's give it one more try.

"Nothing is further from me" is something I am totally unused to. However, "Nothing was further from my mind" works.

(Say:

Nothing was further from my mind...because I respect your privacy.

And:

Nothing was further from my mind than to behave in an inappropriate way. )
