I'm suppose to write about this topic, "The Important things in life endure over time" but to tell you the truth I can't quite make sense of it. "Things in life", is this refering to something in general or events in someone's life? "Endure over time" is probably what's throwing me off the most as I don't quite understand what it means. I know it's silly, but I guess I havn't heard it used much.

Can I get some quick help with this? Just a better understanding of the topic is what I need. I need this ready by tomorrow so I'm hoping to write it in the morning after reading your replies, if any ^^.

Thanks in advance.
"things in life" is general - the writing topic suggests a non-materialistic answer.

"endure over time" means it will last for a long time; suggesting either the age of a person or many people. (In this case, I think it would refer to the author's life because of the topic.)

If I were to write about the important things in life that would endure over time (examples)
The first person I fell in love with
The strong emotional bond that I have with my mother/brothers/sisters
A belief system (religious/political/other)
General topics such as: love, friendship, grief (sometimes)

The topic itself doesn't sound like it would include negative emotions, such as hate or anger.

I hope this helps.

My answer:
Perhaps the key to understanding this question is to be familiar with one popular classic song (a modern-day proverb) in English and then turn to the dictionary for a definition of ‘endure’.

Background information

Best Things in Life are Free is a song written by De silva et al (Mr De silva and others). Here are the words to this classic song

The moon belongs to everyone,
The
best things in life are free,
The stars belong to everyone,
They gleam there for you and me.

After this little song, an idiom developed in English: the best things in life are free. It means that love and romance are what makes life worth living. However, soon after the song was distributed, people with a good sense of humour began quoting cynical comments. Here is one that is typical
“We told them the best things in life are free, and so they've got in the
habit of not paying. Washington Post

So, it’s a popular saying that is often used to confirm that relationships are important but also to make fun of the every-day realities of life; money and social contracts.

Here are some developments on the original proverb

The best things in life are free—friendships and sunshine still cost nothing—but some of the worst
things are also free.

ART is long and life is short

a DOG is for life..

if you would be HAPPY for a week take a wife

VARIETY is the spice of life.

THOUGHT is free.
