What is the *single* most important reason...

...you would want a "fast" lens?  Of course, there may be many reasons for wanting a "fast" lens, but what is the *single* most important reason?

(Please note that the reason that "faster shutter speed" is not listed as an option is because you can shoot whatever exposure time your camera can do at any aperture your lens will do -- it's just that the photo will be less noisy for a given exposure time with the wider aperture.)
