The Devil's Dictionary:    

Definition of Reach

  REACH   noun
The radius of action of the human hand.  The area within which it is possible (and customary) to gratify directly the propensity to provide.
  This is a truth, as old as the hills,
      That life and experience teach:
  The poor man suffers that keenest of ills,
      An impediment of his reach.
