Herbs & Spices: Which ones are impossible to live without?

If you found out you'd only be able to use salt, black pepper, and, say, four single herbs and/or spices for the rest of your life, which would you choose? (no blends allowed)

Would you give up salt or pepper in favor of a fifth herb or spice?

I love cooking with herbs, so this is a tough one for me. I know I'd want thyme, as it's the one I use more often than all the others combined. I go through loads of sage, too. And it's almost impossible to imagine life without cinnamon! I'm not sure about the fourth. Cumin? Bay? Rosemary? I'm thinking it's probably basil, but I'll have to ponder it a while.

No way would I give up salt. Black pepper, possibly... but not salt!
