1 虞卿:
虞卿、游說之士也,一見趙孝成王,賜黃金百鎰,白璧一雙。再見拜為上卿,故號為虞卿。其後,范雎之仇魏齊亡過平原君,於是秦昭王請平原君,願為布衣之交,與飲數日,請曰:「周文王得呂尚而以為太公,齊桓得管夷吾而以為仲父,今范君亦寡人之叔父也。范君之仇在君之家,願使人取其頭。不然,吾不出君於關。」平原君曰:「貴而交者,為賤也;富而友者,為貧也。夫魏齊者、勝之交也。在,固不出,況今又不在臣所乎?」昭王乃遺趙王書曰:「范君之仇魏齊在平原君家,王使人疾持其頭來。不然,吾舉兵而伐趙,又不出王之弟於關。」趙孝成王乃卒圍平原君家,急,魏齊夜亡出,見趙相虞。虞卿度趙王終不可說,乃解其印,與魏齊,閒行,念諸侯莫可以赴急者,乃復走大梁,欲因信陵以至楚。而信陵君聞之,畏秦,猶與未肯見,曰:「虞卿何如人哉?」時侯嬴在傍,曰:「人固未易知,知人亦未易也。夫虞卿一見趙王,賜白璧一雙、黃金百斤;再見,拜為上卿;三見平受相印,萬戶侯。當是之時,天下爭知之。夫魏齊窮困過虞卿,虞卿不敢重爵祿之尊,解相印,捐萬戶侯而閒行。以急士窮而歸公子,公子曰『何如人』,知人固未易也。」信陵君大慚,駕如野迎之。魏齊間信陵君之初重見之,大怒而自刎。趙王聞之,卒取其頭與秦,秦乃遣平原君。虞卿遂留於魏。魏、趙畏秦,莫復用。困而不得意,乃著書八篇,號《虞氏春秋》焉。
