try this:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Memo1: TMemo;
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

function mysort(List: TStringList; Index1, Index2: Integer): Integer;
begin
  result:=length(list[index2])-length(list[index1]);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var s:TStringList;
begin
  memo1.lines.add('213');
  memo1.lines.add('rewrqwte');
  memo1.lines.add('w');
  memo1.lines.add('ererer');
  s:=TStringList.Create;
  s.AddStrings(memo1.lines);
  s.CustomSort(mysort);
  memo1.lines.clear;
  memo1.lines.AddStrings(s);
  s.free;
end;

end.

I would add

  memo1.lines.BeginUpdate;
  memo1.lines.clear;
  memo1.lines.AddStrings(s);
  memo1.lines.EndUpdate;

to speed it up and get less screen activity.
