The Top Ten

God is the most important thing ever! He created all the things on this list if you think about it.
That is true.
God is the only person who loves for real.
Satan can't defeat god.
[Newest]God is in fact real. He is extremely important due to his creation of the universe.
More comments about God

Love towards your family, friends and everybody else. Love, that can turn to stone the anger in a traffic jam, get you through annoyances and pain inflicted by others. It is what motivates you and shows you the best of all ways to follow through any situation, however simple that feeling may be. You work to take advantage of the wonderful working opportunities that the world has to offer (and living conditions), accomplish yourself and give a goal to your life, but doing more than the minimum there is just a bonus... For you could spend a whole life with love to give and receive and only that, and still be happy.
Love. Print it all over your life. Simple as that.


Love and music were a tough choice. "When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace" Jimi Hendrix.
Why is God above love? I mean, I'm not an atheist at all, I believe that there could be something out there, but seriously, Loving one another is more important than loving a God that might not even exist; and if God does exist, God will accept you for your love to others.
Love makes the world go round! (not literally, aha).


Because love is from God. God is love, the ultimate and greatest example of love. Humans love because He first loved us.
[Newest]Life without love is not only painful but also useless.. Nobody can survive without it...

I think family is really the only thing you actually have and I believe they are the most important and I really adore my family
They are persons who will be there to listen and love...
Family are the people that you can go to whenever you have problems, or you need to share something they will always be there to listen to you. I love my family so much
[Newest]They are there for me. Family is indeed an important thing in life.

It brings the world together in so many ways.


Doesn't matter whether you like bieber (who sounds like a 4 year old on helium) or a band like disturbed or breaking benjamin (which are like lap dances to your ears). Music has always united and it'll damn sure stay that way.


Everyone love at least one genre! That's why I love listing to it
[Newest]Music has saved my life is continuing to do that everyday. Starting from Fall Out Boy, I've grown with many bands over the last year or two.

This is about the most important after God, what can you do without good health? Nothing!
Health is definitely more important than music! Without good health, life isn't fun! If you're healthy you have every opportunity to do whatever you like!
It should be obvious that the most important thing is health. Health enables you to meaningfully do, give, or experience every other thing on the list. Saying other things are more important is like saying self-actualization should precede physiological needs on Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
[Newest]Visit Healthcare and VOTE 2016... DEMOCRATS.

Second to god this is the most important item on the list (in my opinion). Too many people believe that "friends come and go," but I know what real friendship is. Friends can become your family. And true friends are lifelong. They'll be with you forever and ever, but only if you want them to. The amazing thing about friendship is the fact that two or more people, who come from alternate cultures, places, and families, began to cherish each other. I believe the number one reson friendship has lost it's meaning is because the word itself is so misused (expecaly in the USA), it isn't that people chose bad friends really it's that we chose bad people to call friends, there's a boundary between acquantnce and friend, and people need to learn it. What about family some would ask? Really when it comes to family vs (true) friendship, I prefer friendship, but other people have preferences. I say that they should generally be seen equal in priority, but the choice of the one that means the most is up to you.
You couldn't possibly live without friends because without friends you wouldn't have anyone to share a joke with or a beer
Who put money on the list? If anything that makes life worse because of all the crime and wars it causes.
[Newest]Whenever I befriend someone in school, they change their school in the next year or humiliate me in public or keep torturing me. :(

I would have to agree with the philosopher Aristotle. who stated that happiness, or what he called eudaimonia, is the most important thing in life. True happiness is the one true end in life, everything else is a means used to achieve true happiness. For example, if you're healthy, you're happy. Love leads to happiness. For many people knowledge brings them happiness. many people may even say that God makes them happy. Happiness is the one true goal in life, if we use our innate sense of rationality we can figure this out for ourselves. To conclude, without happiness, life would be dull and not worth living. In order to live a productive and successful life you must be happy in yourself, your work and your hobbies. Therefore, happiness must be the most important thing in life. All the empirical facts point towards it. So before voting for God or love or even family, stop and think about what you actually want from life. I'm sure most of you will want to be happy.
This means I am the source of my own happiness whether it's about what I am doing, what I like to have, because if I am happy about myself then it usually shared to someone else. When I am finished a project I like, it makes me happy and I would probably treat myself a nice vacation trip, shopping, taking family trip, making other people happy buy using their services and having great times with family and loved ones.
The meaning of life... True and sole
[Newest]Life isn't all about misery. God gives you Hardships in your First 10 years of life. If you be good in those first 10 years, you will have a happy life.

8Foods and Drinks
Without them, you would die of dehydration and starvation. Without drinks, you would cough and be sick infinitely.
We would die without them, it's more important than friends and that's a fact. How could friends be above it? People are idiots.
We would die to starvation like every child that is homeless happens
[Newest]Food is the best

Knowledge is what gets you through life. Without it, you are doomed.
Knowledge shld come before friends because that will help you choose the good from the bad
Without knowledge, you are nothing. A monkey cannot reflect on it's actions and the values of life. Loving with no knowledge is like living without knowing you are living. Fools.
[Newest]Education is needed only till Grade 7 or 8. How on earth would Pythagoras' theorem be useful in life?

Parents help you the most throughout life and they produce us with money and food and keep us in a safe environment
They gave birth to us, this should be second
[Newest]Parents are the ones who teach you about Teacher and God. Losing a parent is really sad.

The Contenders

WE need air to breath so you'd think it's a number one.
Without music we can still live because we can still breathe and get access to food and water.
Without air we will all just die
Which is more important?
Air is overrated. Number 1 should be walruses.
[Newest]You can live Without 5 minutes of happiness, but can you live without air for 5 minutes?

That's kind of an obvious on but yes, it is.
What? Well, it is important.
I love how this is so far down the line in important-ness. This is ESSENTIAL. Maybe more so than God.


[Newest]Definitely more important than God...

you can't live without money...
The money makes our life move...


Now I'm trying to find money after exam to buy guitar and dvd games...


[Newest]You need money but don't get too carried on with it

14Life Itself
Without life you can't think of anything important. Say you die, the best thing that can happen is go to heaven, but you can't choose when your dead! God is important, but life is important to believe God is. Money isn't important as much as the quality of life. Although money makes people happy, imagine the homeless who don't own any! Everything else, family, friends, especially love, you need to be alive to have these things. Life should be important, no murder and no assault on anyone's quality of life.
With life every thing comes love music family water Knowledge friends sex Top Ten Lists earth and almost every thing if there is no life then there is almost nothing
No one has ever thought of life it self what a surprise without life it self most of these things were totally use less
[Newest]What's the point of having life if you can't live it?

15Prophet Muhammad
He was the greatest prophet ever lived, he was close to GOD, he was friend of GOD, this world was made for him, he was the man of peace, power and purity, shown unshakable resolution in the face of adversity, he was as bold as hawk, not to be wind shaken. No doubt he is invincible glorious and an eternal personality ever lived.
If you was talking about THE SON OF GOD, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST I agree. Jesus is greatest person ever live, NO ONE LOVE ME LIKE JESUS, any other man is a sinner, Jesus was pure love, he was sinless & died for the whole world to save us all.
NO doubt cause he is the greatest one of whom ever lived on earth every human should respect him no matter even if you are a cristian or a jew cause almost every relegion of the world was fortold about Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him as a great Leader of humanity and perfect life
One of the greatest person ever. Ranked number one in the book listing 100 most influential persons of all time.
[Newest]Screw him and all religions.

You know it's true. Girls are friends, lovers, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters... It fits every category.
I really don't understand why most boys hate us girls. They don't realise that without women, this world would be nothing. Without women, marriages would not take place and children would not be born. And if children are not born, then humans would be extinct soon, yet everyone gives boys the focus. Goku, Sonic the hedgehog, Mario, Michael Jackson, these are some boys we all focus on. Why can't there be famous girls in this world, even if it's from a video game?


I'm a girl and girls rule! And they r more important than some if this stuff like money
[Newest]Think this without girls the world wouldn't exist but without boys the world wouldn't exist either.

Home oh yeah it is one of the sweetest place in the world
That's why everyone called it as sweet
It is the only place where you can sleep well. Even in hotels, you'd be worrying about the bill.


18Common Sense
Because if people don't have it, they say or do the dumbest things like listing God as number 1 on this list or writing prophet muhammad and jesus as most important things in life. (facepalm)



Life is about moving

He died for our sins, and he loves each and everyone of his children very very much. After all, he is the Son of God. Jesus and God are by far the two most important things in life.
Nothing on earth has been so well documented as the live of Jesus, the son of god. He released mankind from the inherited sin of falling into the hell together with lucifer. Jesus avakened mankind from the spiritual death, so from then on we can reach our former place in heaven again.
Jesus sacrifice for you and for me on the cross.
[Newest]He is God so voting for Jesus or God you are voting for 2

I have craved it for my life even if I am a youth I want it
You need power to control other military war lands
This one is really most important thing.

23Being a good person.
You mean not being a Republican?

Job is really important because everything (happiness comes from materials, parties, travelling etc... Gifts... ) are dependent on job.

It gives you recognition and independent feel in the world.
Most important thing after: god - love (family - 1wife) - friends (3-4)
Those 4 things complete your life with happy times...
But no one can have all of those easly.. you must work to get it

Science at 21?!?! Seriously?!?! Without it, would we exist? No. And if we could not understand it, where would we be? In caves, working out how to catch our lunch.


How would we exist without this, we do science everyday. Like making observations, if you see it's snowing you know it's cold so you wear a thick coat, how is this at 23 on the list, without it how would have we discovered half the things on this list, think about that.
Just picked it despite all the religious crap on this poll :P

Without the Earth we would all be dead.
So far of what we know, there is no other living planet besides earth so life would not exist. (I made this comment on january 4,2015).
I agree. We wouldn't be here! Should be in the top 5.


Please stop. We get it, God is important to you, but please realize there are others here with differing views. Obviously not everyone has the same view on religion, but I don't believe that outright dismissing or even insulting them would sit well with the teachings that you've been following, so please, no self-righteous hypocrisy on here, thank you.
It's like if you have no faith you are a non believer!
No this shouldn't even be on the list at all.

Without the brain we know nothing and we
Are just animals, just imagine that!

29A Soul

God created Evil in order to challenge us humans. Evil is important in that it tests you how brave and courageous you are and how powerful you are in fighting against it. Without evil, we probably wouldn't have that many famous figures. While not positive at all, it managed to make us strong and tough, not to mention more faithful in god and religions.
What exactly is evil? What is evil but the other side's good? If history is written by the victors, then is morality nothing more than a subconscious construct of one's own mind?
Evil may be evil but it challenges us so we can grow stronger. every time we make a mistake if we learn from it we can push through that wall


32Linkin Park
Um dude.. Music isn't important


They don't suck. They are the one of the best band ever. KEEP GOING Linkin Park.
What's so good about them?


I'm convinced respect is THE most important thing in life - the foundation upon which we can build a life containing all other essentials; respect or self and ALL others on the planet.
Because we need respect in our world
Treat humans the way you would like to be treated. Other wise you won't make it far in life. ;)

34Standing Up for Beliefs
Which is why I'm a Democrat.

Your future career depends on it.


Without it, would there even be life? NO. And, it's very good.
Get real. Today sex is mostly for recreational use and not having children. Yes it is fun and can be relaxing but it can rear back and turn deadly. Always wear a condom even with your wife or girlfriend better safe than sorry. I say this cause I have slept with plenty of women at work for entertainment. I am not going to think for one second my wife isn't doing the same thing everyone else is doing. So please be safe and enjoy yourself I do.
Sex is thing that give real pleasure to every one in this world (Not only human being but Animals also).

If you don't have heart, you wont succeed at anything in life.


This needs to be ranked higher.
You certainly need a heart.


How can I live without Sarcasm? (Note the sarcasm)


41Self Defense
You need to be safe and make aure that you are safe. You need to have right to live and you need to defend your self

42The Internet
You wouldn't be reading this had it not been invented. It is a good thing to have but certainly not the most important thing in life.


This list would not exist without the Internet.


The Internet was my first friend (besides God and my family)

All 50 states have Lgbt equality soon!... Then all world!... Healthcare too!... For ALL!

44The Name of God
If you mean Jehovah, then yes.

Total waste of time. Get a job and not working in anything to do with the movie industry. In hard times this won't feed you or keep you warm unless you burn your cd's but even then they are toxic crap.

46Good Deeds
Good deeds are a very good thing to do

Pets also one of the important thing.. The guard our house and they even listen what we said
I am very close with my dog. She's a well behaved pitbull and she is the only one that is thrilled to see me when I get home when no one else is


Pets also one of the important thing in our life... They guard our house


It is one of the most important thing in life. It keeps our life happy and healthy. It also helps attracting a person towards everyone

Well, I do laugh at Republicans.

51Top Ten Lists
If they weren't, would we be here?
This website helped me let go of the painful experiences I had with cartoons when I was a kid.

52Good Use of Time


I agree. Time is so precious and the one thing we take for granted. I used to just stare at the second hand on the clock going around, literally wasting precious time. Time I'll never get back. I wish I were a time billionaire.


Really!? Nobody thinks that time should at least be on the top 10?
Time is very important
[Newest]It is surprising that time once passed, never returns.


It COULD be a first priority for users who wish to be lifelong TopTenners.


Sleep is very important. Not enough and you won't be at your best. So get a good sleep tonight.

57Blessed Virgin Mary
She is the Mother Of God.
She is the purest in the world
Mother Mary pray for us
[Newest]She gave birth to Jesus

It makes guys laugh like troll laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud

59Faith In God


Yes and I made TheTopTens a bigger web and My user wasn't out for 5 years and I already have that many followers


You are the most Paramount thing in your life. You'll see...
Without myself everything is logic less.

62Tooth Care

63Sons / Daughters

64Internet Memes
Internet Memes aren't so important in life... Of course they can be funny and they make us happy, but they can't replace food or water.
Life is incomplete without cat pictures
Why is this here. Yes life can be complete without cat pictures. People before internet times survived


Boys are the best things in life so I feel they should be number two
They got girls so add boys
Whoever made this list is making me sad by adding girs 45 spaces above boy.

And still no patience? Without patience out world and society would fall apart and chaos would rule. I think it still needs to be emphasized even more in our culture.

Life is full of calculation wherever we go whatever job we take up.

God will be take care of every thing if we surrender to him
You must surrender to life and then you will accept it for what it is now at this moment
Surrender to god you will get every thing.

This is something that I wish our country had more of, so that we might trust one another and as a result love one another more.

71Chuck Norris
Chuck Norris is love, Chuck Norris is life
No one is voting him because everybody konws that he is the most at all!

No. Ok, I don't think we need swag to keep us alive. I think we need food, air, and water to keep us alive. Swag can go die in a fire and be left alone forever.
They're pretty good for camping, comfy.
Faith in humanity: destroyed.

And Betrayal. Gotta choose whom to.



Without communication, life is not only difficult but also impossible. We need to communicate with family, friends... Even for the smaller matters. It is the way of building relation.
It is the most important factor.
Life is not only difficult but also impossible without communication.
It is the way through which we can build our relation.

77Contentment's even a nice word. When you are in a place of utter contentment, very little else matters. Although the hardest part is getting there; but once you find's the most perfect, powerful, invisible force



79Eternal Peace

My close second would have to be hyena

81Dallas Cowboys

82Morgan Freeman

We would pretty much all hate each other (only if you've been in a fight ). How could we all be friends without forgiveness? You would also hate your father and you mother , what a world we would be in . This should be higher.





Yes schooling is very important but what is more so is what you do with it. A concept lost on someone like you though!

88Giving Your Opinion
This site is a great way to express your opinion. Most of us won't hate on you for your opinion. Also, you can create your own remix. I would recommend this site to anyone.


What's the point of sharing our own opinions if other people are just gonna respond negatively to them. Or if people share their opinions in a rude or wrong way.
I Respect Everyones opinion unless its not mine

Gratitude is an ability to appreciate people and events that you've experience and was greatly impacted by them in your life. Memory and appreciation of it brings value to your existence and becomes a history of your life. Gratitude is what you will be observing and feeling through it at the very last minutes of your life if you will get lucky to have them.
As in "I owe, so I must give back". Living each moment with gratitude enables happiness, peace, contentment, love and a true sense of well-being not only for oneself but for others as well. It provides motivation to love and care for others when I'd simply rather not.

Twitter IS my life


You need somewhere to live


It's cheaper than therapy.
It is sad to hear that the beer seller is rich and the farmer who gives us food is poor in India.


Maybe but it taste like piss

I was made to think cattle was the most important happening in life

Respect yourself and who you are in your life

Nutella is love. Nutella is life

98Axl Rose

This is stupid. Anime is not important. You don't need it to survive or live. It doesn't help you. Yes you can stop watching anime if you start. I watched an episode of Attack on Titan once and hated it and I stopped watching it. It's possible
Anime is the most essential component of life. Once you gain an interest in it, you cannot stop, you can NEVER stop.
The superiority of Anime to other forms of animation must be recognized by the general public!
[Newest]It the best thing ever
