John T. Chambers

God will give us the strength to be able to handle things. I mean, you can try to do it on your own, and sometimes you can pull off some stuff, but in the long run, it’s much easier with Him by our side.

As the Executive Chairman of ‘Breitbart News’ with a long run in business and finance, I can tell you, it’s hard to run a company that is infinitesimally smaller than Fox; it takes a steady and experienced hand.
Steve Bannon
To me, the most shocking thing about grit is how little we know, how little science knows, about building it. Every day, parents and teachers ask me, ‘How do I build grit in kids? What do I do to teach kids a solid work ethic? How do I keep them motivated for the long run?’ The honest answer is, I don’t know.

Fred Savage
What works for me is simply to read a lot of stuff throughout the year – not with a particular story or theme in mind, but just because you never know what might be useful or interesting in the long run.

I like to believe that people in the long run are going

Suze Orman
If we invest in researching and developing energy technology, we’ll do some real good in the long run, rather than just making ourselves feel good today. But climate change is not the only challenge of the 21st century, and for many other global problems we have low-cost, durable solutions.
Bjorn Lomborg
When my son was growing up, I was always guilty, no matter what I did. Make decisions and be happy with the decisions you’ve made. I tell myself, in the long run, it’s the love, the quality of relationships that you have with your family, your friends and giving back to the community that matters.
Padmasree Warrior
I was always pushed to do that much more, and in the long run that made me more of an MMA fighter. My mom always told me that if I let it go to the judges, I’d lost. There was no way I was going to win a decision, so I had to find ways to finish the fight fast.
Ronda Rousey
Superior strength is found in the long run to lie with those who had right on their side.

Hollywood, we get it. The Christian faith just doesn’t work for you ‘in the long run.’ However, for a large percentage of this country (the same country that makes your movies millions of dollars), it does. So please, for all of our sakes, keep your ‘beliefs to yourself’ and just ‘stop the hate.’
Steven Crowder
We have telemedicine where, if you come into our office, you can go downstairs, and there’s a machine there and a nurse there, and you talk to a doctor who works from a clinic down the street.

Olivia Holt
They say TV has a tendency to diminish actors, and I think that’s probably true in the long run – it wears on ’em like bad dental work – but Cheech doesn’t show any of the signs of being damaged that way. And as a man, he’s fantastic.

We are so isolated in our own little worlds, in our own little geographies, that it’s pretty hard to understand where someone else is coming from.

J. D. Vance
As human beings, it is natural for us to pick up signals about what is valued in our environment and to want to embody those values. But being superior and infallible isn’t something to strive for. Those values do not encourage people to do what is good for their organization in the long run.

Raghuram Rajan
When I am on a long run in a play, I’m not sure how I would fill the days if I did not paint or write. On a basic level, it just stops me going crazy.
Antony Sher
I believe that pluralistic secularism, in the long run, is a more deadly poison than straightforward persecution.
Francis Schaeffer
Never make too good of a deal. It sounds a little counterintuitive, but the deals that are too good of a deal for you in the long run will end up hurting you. A lot of people in our business don’t realize that. They think their job is to go in a room and negotiate the highest price.
Ryan Kavanaugh
The only sense that is common in the long run, is the sense of change and we all instinctively avoid it.
E. B. White
My favorite off-mountain workout is the long run. It's

Grace Potter
In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute. In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.

Gabe Kapler
I think because I am a proven rookie that it is going to help me in the long run.

We do not postpone the participation of the lower classes of our people in the profits of economic enterprise, and in other countries, they do postpone it. In the long run, I think our policy is better, and we stand by it.

Norbert Wiener
When a big play occurs for our team, I’m concentrating on how the defense is reacting to it. Most of the time, I don’t see the great catch or the long run. What I’m looking at is how the other team defended it.
Tom Landry
Cheer for your teammates, regardless of whether they’re fast or slow, veteran or neophyte, varsity or JV. Or rally the spirits of someone who’s had a bad performance. Also, encourage stragglers during tough workouts; jog back to ‘pick up’ a runner who’s behind during a long run.
Don Kardong
Obesity among young Americans is a serious problem that can have serious ramifications in the long run.
Virginia Foxx
Everything we do helps the new artists in the long run.

The pistol isn’t going to go away, but the job in the long run is going to be to deliver the ball from the pocket.

Eve Torres
I don’t know why it was canceled, but ‘Mancuso, FBI,’ it should have had a good long run, but it wasn’t picked up. Maybe there was a problem with me. I have no idea.
Robert Loggia
In the long run, Europe will certainly move toward unification. But it will be a process of push and pull, and there will be resistance.
Norman Davies
I really do see the good in people, and I don’t want to change that. That’s really how I view things, so sometimes I’ll look past a lot of huge red flags because I see something else in someone. Then, of course, it always comes back to haunt me in the long run.
Jennifer Morrison
If you play your cards right things are going to happen in the long run. In the short run, it is anybody’s guess.

K. Eric Drexler
If ‘Chicago Fire’ goes for a long run, maybe I’ll look for a place, but in my line of work, you can’t throw your eggs into one basket because you might have to move. I’m not big on ‘things,’ though, so I don’t own TVs, couches or cars because I wouldn’t know where to put them.
Taylor Kinney
It is more comfortable for me, in the long run, to be rude than polite.
Wyndham Lewis
In the long run, no nation can prosper unless the world prospers.

Building walls isn’t going to work in the long run. Some people are happy with the wall in Israel, but somebody will get a weapon someday and knock it over or something. Walls aren’t the answer between countries, though.
Arlo Guthrie
Going for a really long run, a bike ride, or cross-country skiing helps me get away from all the noise. I tell myself, ‘The pain you’re feeling, just enjoy it because it’s going to help you across that finish line first.’ If you’re having a crap day, go for a run. It makes a big difference.
Lewis Hamilton
In the long run, I think I like ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ better as a television series, because it had so much more time and room and space to grow.
Seanan McGuire
The good news is that a competitive dollar in the global market and a strong dollar at home are compatible in both the long run and during the transition to a more competitive dollar.
Martin Feldstein
Hunger, inadequate medical care, poor housing, and infe

Hunger, inadequate medical care, poor housing, and inferior schools are enemies of the sense of wonder. It is easier and less expensive in the long run to prevent a loss of imagination by providing adequate nutrition, housing, medical care, and schooling than it is to try to restore that loss.
Margaret Geller
The fact is that democracy anywhere in the world, including in the United States, is not something that comes easy. And yet, we are committed to it, and equality and democracy are the only ways in the long run that Jews will be safe in the Middle East.
Ian Lustick
The energy you create around you is perhaps going to be the most important attribute – in the long run, EQ trumps IQ. Without being a source of energy for others, very little can be accomplished.
Satya Nadella
In nations where the voices of intolerance are most visible and momentarily powerful, it is in our long run interests to remain firm in our clear articulation that the use of violence in response to speech is to be condemned.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
Anybody who can improve the business in the long run is a good buyer.
Rajeev Suri
Wars and elections are both too big and too small to matter in the long run. The daily work – that goes on, it adds up.
Barbara Kingsolver
I pay people very, very well – probably more than I have to. But that costs me less money in the long run because I’m not having to constantly train somebody. I pay them enough that they don’t go seeking a higher scale at the next restaurant.
Paula Deen
People understand we’re on the doorstep of doing something really historic that will help the American people and strengthen our country for the long run.
David Axelrod
I believe that if you have a person who understands your profession, it is a little easier and in the long run, it helps because you understand the subjectivity of time and notion that comes along with a particular profession.
Rubina Dilaik
It’s not always easy to take the high road when you are hurting, but in the long run at least you still have your integrity and dignity.
Cynthia Bailey
There are a group of people who would like to silence everybody and have everybody go along to get along, but that’s not going to be very helpful for us in the long run, in terms of solving our problems. And somebody has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to, you know, the bullies.
Ben Carson
Success has nothing to do with box office as far as I’m concerned. Success has to do with achieving your goals, your internal goals, and growing as a person. It would have been nice to have been connected with a couple more box office hits, but in the long run, I don’t think it makes you happier.
Alan Arkin
I have a skepticism toward romance. I believe that decency and companionship are, in the long run, more important in life.
Edith Pearlman
You’re a sovereign as a citizen. If you’re not involved in your government, you’re not doing your job. In the long run that’s very bad for the Republic.
Michael Novak
I think it’s evident that expensive neighborhoods in Seattle are surrounded by natural beauty. That elevates city life. So if we can make cities more attractive in the long run, we can be smarter about issues like development, zoning and economics.
Stone Gossard
I came to the conclusion that it was unlikely that a man as really awful as I think that Steve Jobs was could possibly create a great company for the long term. I just don’t believe bad guys do well in the long run.

The upward course of a nation’s history is due in the long run to the soundness of heart of its average men and women.
Queen Elizabeth II
I believe that things are always going to work out, even if in the beginning it doesn’t look like they are working out. I know in the long run they are going to work out, and it’s going to be fine.
Ben Carson
I think anytime you can take as much off the quarterback as possible, that only helps them out in the long run.
Matt LaFleur
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.

Paul George
American shows can go on for 20 years. I respond more to the British format. Three seasons is a long run for them to tell a story.
Alia Shawkat
I do feel that federation, loose parallel processes, are less than we’ve got, less than we could have and, in the very long run, less than what God wants in the Church.
Rowan Williams
I don’t know how it would play out it the long run, if I were go to series with the story, I don’t know. I just miss Peter so much on a personal level, that’s about what I can say. He’s my buddy and I wish he were around.
Andreas Katsulas
