《著希》

1 著希:
道有稽,德有據。人主不聞要,故耑與運堯,而無以見也。道與德館,而無以命也,義不當格,而無以更也。若是置之,雖安非定也。端倚有位,名號弗去。故希人者無悖其情,希世者無繆其賓。文禮之野,與禽獸同則,言語之暴,與蠻夷同謂。夫君子者,易親而難狎,畏禍而難卻,嗜利而不為非,時動而不苟作。體雖安之,而弗敢處,然後禮生;心雖欲之,而弗敢信,然後義生。夫義節欲而治,禮反情而辨者也,故君子弗徑情而行也。夫亂世者,以麤智為造意,以中險為道,以利為情,若不相與同惡,則不能相親,相與同惡,則有相憎。說者言仁,則以為誣,發於義,則以為誇,平心而直告之,則有弗信。故賢者之於亂世也,絕豫而無由通,異類而無以告,苦乎哉。賢人之潛亂世也,上有隨君,下無直辭,君有驕行,民多諱言。故人乖其誠,能士隱其實情,心雖不說,弗敢不譽。事業雖弗善,不敢不力,趨舍雖不合,不敢弗從。故觀賢人之於亂世也,其慎勿以為定情也。
