The longer you stay skeptical, doubtful, intellectually uncomfortable, the better it is for you.
The longer you stay out of this sport, the less sharp you are, and I've been aware of that; that's why I've stayed and haven't wanted to retire and come back -- because you skip a beat.
The longer you sit with some shit, the harder it is to talk about.
The longer you silence a violin, the harder it is for it to find its true voice again.
The longer you remain silent, the longer you don't turn over documents, a presumption begins to build that you're withholding something. That's human nature. That may not be a legal presumption, but that's a common sense presumption.
The longer you practice nonviolence and the meditative qualities of it that you will need, the more likely you are to do something intelligent in any situation.
The longer you play, the better chance the better player has of winning.
The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.
The longer you live, the smarter you get because you've been around. You've seen things. You've gone through different emotional experiences in your own life, and hopefully, you understand things better. And that makes you a better actress.
The longer you live, the harder it becomes. To grab them. Each little moment as it arrived. To be living in something other than the past or the future. To be actually here.
The longer you live and the more you learn, the more clearly you will feel the difference between the few men who are truly great and the mere virtuosi.
The longer you hold a dollar, the longer you hold money, the more valuable it becomes over time. So the younger you are, the more ability you have to hold money longer term.
The longer you have something, the stronger the bond. That's true with people as well as things.
The longer you hang in there, the greater the chance that something will happen in your favor. No matter how hard it seems, the longer you persist, the more likely your success.
The longer you delay, the more your sin gets strength and rooting. If you cannot bend a twig, how will you be able to bend it when it is a tree?
The longer you delay that thing you know you should do, the more difficult it gets. The easier thing in the short run is often the harder thing in the long run. Pain today, gain tomorrow.
The longer you commute the less happy you're likely to be.
The longer you are in a place, the more you get under its layers.
The longer workers are unemployed, the greater the likelihood that their skills will erode and workers will lose attachment to the labor force, permanently damaging the economy's dynamism and potential output.
