Security is always a compromise with convenience. The only absolute security is when you do nothing with no computer at all, but that is not what you want. Think about house keys: leaving a double under the doormat is really insecure, but it is a life saver when you lose your own; leaving them to a neighbour is somewhat safer, but less convenient, etc. A very important lesson to learn is that security is bounded by the weakest link, including non-computer stuff. You may have your 65536-bits RSA key protected by a passphrase that is an epic poem, stored on a physical dongle with built-in fingerprint and ear-print reader, if someone can attack you with a knife and force you to give it, you might as well have used "swordfish" as a password.
