Aside from water, air, food and clothes there are some things which have become part of life and without them life will never be complete. The world has gone so complex and these things may or will help life easier for us. Cellphone is one of the things I cannot part with anywhere I go. Perhaps because of the nature of my job where I answer emergency calls 24/7.It is the most versatile electronic device ever invented as a means of communuication. I cannot leave the house without it. The next is a moisturizing lotion. I have atopy(skin allergy), so my skin is sensitive and dry. I have to apply it several times a day or else I will itch. Another important item is my pair of eyeglasses bacause I cannot read without it. Another one is a lipstick. I just feel bare and pale without it. These are the few items which I think have been an intergral part of me and perhaps without them life will be miserable. How about you?

As per me, it is love. Because this is the stuff I am made of. God made me out of love. My mother brought me up with love. My father loved me because I was his eldest son. I love my wife, because God made her for me. My kids love me, because I love them. I love my neighbours because it is my God's order. I love my country becuse it gave me identity and recognition. I love my profession because I enjoy doing it. I love human beings because I love God Who loves humans. I love poetry. As a poet said: Whatever is in the world, Is the circumference of centre point of love.

well, like you i say cell phone. i agree about it being one of the greatest things for communication. i also couldn't live without the internet. not only for the fact that it gives me something to do everyday but because i use it to keep in contact with my friends and family back home. and because you mentioned lipstick i feel fine mentioning make up, haha. eyeliner, mascara, cover up. i know i could technically live with out it, but i wouldn't want to. i hate even going out of the house without it on. oh, and chapstick. especially now in the winter my lips get so dry and chapped, it's really bad.

The 3 things I can't live without are surfing on the Internet. It can be fun and a good sourse of information. I can't live without music and dance. It reliefs stress, listening to the music and dancing by myself, I don't need partner for dancing, I'm from the generation of the 70's when partners did not participate in the dance too much. I also use make-up, it is a routine, I won't feel comfortable to go outside without it though I know there is nobody important there to see me.

Surfing the internet will perhaps be one of my ways of unwinding from work and beating the stress. How I wish that I had the dancing feet like yours. I am not good in dancing and singing.

Yes I agree money is one of the most powerful thing in everybody's life. It can move mountains. But sometimes some people make use of it to acquire power and the sad thing it can self destruct. Hope we make use of it to improve our lives.

Yes I am realizing now that in this modern world, there are lot of things we cannot live without... . Wish our life had been simpler like in the olden days when what is the foremost in their minds is SURVIVAL. However, I guess we are still lucky to be born in this age - we enjoy the comforts of modern facilities in just a press of a button.

To me, it is essential to have friends you can rely on that you don't have to worry about them stabbing you in the back. I know you are talking about material things, but having the right friends can help you get far in life. They can assist you and aid you when you are in great need.

I think i couldn't live without my family,without a home above me,television with cartoons and stuff.I think i can't live without a car and a hairstyler. Well think of things which you can live without i think there are not many things which you can live without except for war and murder and stuff.There are so many things which i can't live without.Like a good toilet or shower.Or animals.I don;t think nature would be complete without them.I do could live without spiders and stuff and insects but not without cats and dogs just to name something.
