The Most Valuable Thing

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 replied: "Because no one can name its price."
