1 薛直:
胜州都督薛直,丞相纳之子也,好杀伐,不知鬼神。直在州,行县还归,去州二驿,逢友人自京来谒。直延入驿厅,命食,友人未食先祭,直曰。出此食谓何。友人曰。佛经云,有旷野鬼,食人血肉,佛往化之,令其不杀,故制此戒。又俗所传,每食先施,得寿长命。直曰。公大妄诞,何处有佛。何者是鬼。俗人相诳,愚者雷同,智者不惑。公盖俗人耳。言未久,空中有声云。薛直,汝大狂愚。宁知无佛。宁知无鬼。来祸于君,命终必不见妻子。当死于此,何言妄耶。直闻之大惊,趋下再拜,谢曰。鄙人蒙固,不知有神,神其诲之。空中又言曰。汝命尽午时,当急返,得与妻孥相见。不尔,殡越于此矣。直大恐,与友人驰赴郡,行一驿,直入厅休偃。从者皆休,忽见直去。从者百馀人。皆左右从人。驿吏入户,已死矣。于是驿报其家。直已先至家,呼妻与别曰。吾已死北驿,身在今是鬼,恐不得面诀,故此暂来。执妻子之手,但言努力,复乘马出门,奄然而殁。出《记闻》
