《三寶》

1 三寶:
天下皆謂我道大,似不肖。老子言:天下謂我德大,我則佯愚似不肖。夫唯大,故似不肖,唯獨名德大者為身害,故佯愚似若不肖。無所分別,無所割截,不賤人而自責。若肖久矣。肖,善也。謂辨惠也。若大辨惠之人,身高自貴行察察之政所從來久矣。其細也夫。言辨惠者唯如小人,非長者。我有三寶,持而保之。老子言:我有三寶,抱持而保倚。一曰慈,愛百姓若赤子。二曰儉,賦歛若取之於己也。三曰不敢為天下先。執謙退,不為倡始也。慈故能勇,以慈仁,故能勇於忠孝也。儉故能廣,天子身能節儉,故民日用廣矣。不敢為天下先,不為天下首先。故能成器長。成器長,謂得道人也。我能為得道人之長也。今舍慈且勇,今世人舍慈仁,但為勇武。舍儉且廣,舍其儉約,但為奢泰。舍後且先,舍其後己,但為人先。死矣!所行如此,動入死地。夫慈以戰則勝,以守則固。夫慈仁者,百姓親附,并心一意,故以戰則勝敵,以守衛則堅固。天將救之,以慈衛之。天將救助善人,必與慈仁之性,使能自營助也。
