the most valuable thing in the world

sozan, a chinese zen master, was asked by a student:
“what is the most valuable thing in the world?”

the master replied:
“the head of a dead cat.”

“why is the head of a dead cat the most valuable thing in the world?”
inquired the student.

sozan answered:
“because no one can name its price.”
