Long explanation:

Only in Chinese is represented as 只要 (zhǐyào). This expression is used in the conditional clause of a sentence and followed by 就 (jiù), indicating that the condition is stated first and the result follows after. The condition is usually something the speaker believes to be quite minimal or easily achieved, thereby creating the sense of 'as long as' or 'only if'.
