《盟會要》

1 盟會要:
至意雖難喻,蓋聖人者貴除天下之患。貴除天下之患,故《春秋》重,而書天下之患遍矣。以為本於見天下之所以致患,其意欲以除天下之患,何謂哉?天下者無患,然後性可善;性可善,然後清廉之化流;清廉之化流,然後王道舉。禮樂興,其心在此矣。《傳》曰:諸侯相聚而盟。君子修國曰:此將率為也哉。是以君子以天下為憂也,患乃至於弒君三十六,亡國五十二,細惡不絕之所致也。辭已喻矣,故曰:立義以明尊卑之分,強干弱枝以明大小這職;別嫌疑之行,以明正世之義;采摭托意,以矯失禮。善無小而不舉,無惡小而不去,以純其美。別賢不肖以明其尊。親近以來遠,因其國而容天下,名倫等物不失其理。公心以是非,賞善誅惡而王澤洽,始於除患,正一而萬物備。故曰大矣哉其號,兩言而管天下。此之謂也。
