    The more I.... and the longer I...

    how do we use the phrase, the more?

    Example:

    "The more I believe in this dream, the more would I want to do everything to reach it"

    i found it in a site. is that correct?

    how about the phrase, the longer?

    Re: The more I.... and the longer I...
