1 王祜:
岐州西二十里王祜者,豪富之家也。第宅華麗,擬于貴顯。常開舘舍。以待往來。至于珍饌芳醪,雖有千人詣之,曾不缺乏。忽一日,有一道士謁祜,自稱華山道士學真。携一張琴。負一壼藥。來求寄泊。祜性且好道,既問之,忻然出迎。延于深院,敬待倍常。道士問祜曰。君如是富,足敵侯伯之樂也。福則福矣,其如不賢。祜笑而起拜。道士曰。君設食於門下,以俟賢俊耶。以待餓者而飼之耶。若以待餓,方今天下安樂。餘糧栖畆。人無乏絕,又何飼之。若以俟賢俊,則不聞君延一賢,揖一俊。足以知君自不賢耳。無訝我言,我恐君有憑痴之名,喧譁于人口,故以此直言以悟君,亦緣感君倍常敬仰我也。祜遂慨然動容,再拜之。道士又曰。我聞人之好樂,必有其師。事縱橫者,實存遊說之志;讀《孫》《吳》者,那無爭戰之心哉。某手携一張琴。負一壼藥者。豈獨欲勞頓也,抑有旨耳。携琴者,我知琴有古風,欲人知我好古,又欲化人還淳朴,省澆浮也。負藥壼者。我知人之多病,欲人知我有痊平人病之意也。我琴非止自化也,化人也。我藥非止痊自病也,痊人病也。噫。君之富濟於人,與夫家累千金,剝割人者則殊。如以古之豪貴之家待士,則怍矣。必以賢愚有別,慎保身名,無反招謗耳。祜復再拜。道士乃命酒自酌。纔曙,遽辭而去。祜令人潛偵之。見道士化一大鹿,西走不知所之。出《瀟湘錄》
