Re: what does this mean?

"a sincere compliment is very valuable."

To say that something has a high value for someone / is highly appreciated,  you can also say it is 'worth its weight in gold'.

Ironically, you could also say: a sincere compliment is priceless (you can't buy it)  
which means almost the same
