a quote to ponder

I know it's been a while.. School just got out so I finally have some free time =]. Here's a quote from Takuan Soho..

"Nothing is more precious than life. Yet, at the moment when we must throw away this valued life and stand on rightmindedness, there is nothing more highly esteemed than rightmindedness."

What do you think about this quote? personally, I love it. I'm just curious to hear your thoughts.
