I was responding to your comment that "personally, I don't see a need for a tripod everywhere you go". I can only agree with that if you go on to add "personally, I don't see a need for a camera everywhere you go" - although I'll make an exception for certain sorts of photography such as news and documentary.
If you want the best possible technical results, you need a tripod every time. If you want the best possible artistic results, on the whole I'd say the same.
Using a tripod doesn't guarantee that your composition is perfect; but it does guarantee that you have an incentive to at least think about it - and to judge from forum queries many photographers don't think about it.
