About The Most Valuable Thing in the World--and other honorably mentionable greatests and mosts...

"...the poorest, the weakest, the most vulnerable and therefore the most valuable." - Roger Rosenblatt, "Essay: The Trial"

"We do not understand that when the buffalo are all slaughtered, the wild horses are tamed, the secret corners of the forest heavy with scent of many men, and the view of the ripe hills blotted by talking wires. Where is the thicket? Gone. Where is the eagle? Gone. It is the end of living and the beginning of survival."
Chief Seattle

This Golden Eagle died on a PacificCorp power line near Harrisburg, Oregon. - February 2005

Truth is, baby, you need that five-to-nine-a-day!

The Most Valuable Thing in the World? Some say Truth, others say Time, still others say Knowledge, Love, Life, Virtue, Freedom and Nature. With the passage of millennia, the debate still rages. Here at 10kTruth, we're very fond of Steinbeck but ultimately leaning towards the head of the dead cat.

"Loyalty is priceless and
Is neither sold nor bought.
Alas, how few who seem to know
Its value as they ought."
Thornton W. Burgess, Bowser the Hound

"Every mystery box sold comes with a guarantee that there will be something of value in it."
Michael Logsdon

"I've got a better idea."
"Who said that?"

"You haven't had an idea for thousands of years."
"There is a place where we could find the greatest thing a man could want. The goal of everybody's hopes and dreams."
"What the hell are you talking about?"
"The most fabulous object in the world."
"That sounds like a good idea."
Terry Gilliam's TIme Bandits, 1981 Fantasy Comedy Adventure Film

"The most valuable thing in the world is the truth; so valuable that it has often been barricaded by a bodyguard of lies."
Winston Churchill

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."

"And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about. I understand why a system built on a pattern must try to destroy the free mind, for that is one thing which can by inspection destroy such a system. Surely I can understand this, and I hate it and I will fight against it to preserve the one thing that separates us from the uncreative beasts. If the glory can be killed, we are lost."
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

"And what is the most valuable thing in life? It is, quite simply, the association of a perfect human being."
Bhakti Siddhartha, The Most Valuable Gift

"Harvard cost me too much for what it taught me; but it charged me nothing for the most valuable thing I got there, my friends."
Henry David Thoreau

"(Time is) the most valuable thing a man can spend."

"Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it."
Mark Twain

"The most beautiful thing in the world is, of course, the world itself."
Wallace Stevens
