《東方朔》

Library Resources
1 東方朔:
俗言:東方朔、太白星精,黃帝時為風后,堯時為務成子,周時為老聃,在越為范蠡,在齊為鴟夷子皮,言其神聖能興王霸之業,變化無常。

2 東方朔:
謹按:《漢書》:東方朔、平原人也。孝武皇帝時,招延賢良、文學之士,待以不次之位,故四方多上書言得失、自衒鬻者。於是朔詣闕自陳:「十二失父,長養兄嫂。年十三學書,十四擊劍,十六誦《詩》,十九習孫、吳兵法。又常服子路之言。臣朔年二十三,長九尺三寸,目若懸珠,齒若編貝,勇若孟賁,捷若慶忌,廉如鮑叔,信若尾生。若此,可以為天子大臣矣。」朔文辭不遜,高自稱譽,由是見偉,稍益親幸,官至太中大夫,倡優畜之,不豫國政。劉向少時數問長老賢通於事及朔時人,皆云:朔口諧倡辯,不能持論,喜為凡庸誦說,故今後世多傳聞者。而楊雄亦以為朔言不純師,行不純德,其流風遺書蔑如也。然朔所以名過其實,以其恢誕多端,不名一行,應諧似優,不窮似智,正諫似直,穢德似隱。非夷、齊,是柳惠,其滑稽之雄乎!朔之逢古射覆,其事浮淺,行於眾,僮兒牧豎莫不眩耀。而後之好事者因取奇言怪語附著之耳,安在能神聖歷世為輔佐哉!
