That is correct. Usually the most problems will be caused by the motor
cycling off and on more. When a motor starts up it draws more current for a
short period of time while the motor is starting up. This puts more stress
on the motor. If you have a motor like on my well, there is a set of points
that puts a capacitor in and out of the circuit for about a second at
startup while the motor comes up to speed. The more often the points cycle,
the faster they wear out.
