TDD and test automation

There is often a discussion around TDD(Test Driven Development) and test automation.

Following is my view of the topic:
TDD and test automation definitely compliment each other.
Test automation helps TDD in a very positive manner.
However, for TDD to be effective I think the existence of tests is a starting point and not the automation element.
Eventually though, as the topics/features/user stories grow in number, automation comes in handy and helpful.
In terms of automation, the punch line is:
 "If you need something more often, then automate"
