《王祜》

Library Resources
1 王祜:
岐州西二十里王祜者,豪富之家也。第宅华丽,拟于贵显。常开舘舍。以待往来。至于珍馔芳醪,虽有千人诣之,曾不缺乏。忽一日,有一道士谒祜,自称华山道士学真。携一张琴。负一壼药。来求寄泊。祜性且好道,既问之,忻然出迎。延于深院,敬待倍常。道士问祜曰。君如是富,足敌侯伯之乐也。福则福矣,其如不贤。祜笑而起拜。道士曰。君设食于门下,以俟贤俊耶。以待饿者而饲之耶。若以待饿,方今天下安乐。馀粮栖畆。人无乏绝,又何饲之。若以俟贤俊,则不闻君延一贤,揖一俊。足以知君自不贤耳。无讶我言,我恐君有凭痴之名,喧哗于人口,故以此直言以悟君,亦缘感君倍常敬仰我也。祜遂慨然动容,再拜之。道士又曰。我闻人之好乐,必有其师。事纵横者,实存游说之志;读《孙》《吴》者,那无争战之心哉。某手携一张琴。负一壼药者。岂独欲劳顿也,抑有旨耳。携琴者,我知琴有古风,欲人知我好古,又欲化人还淳朴,省浇浮也。负药壼者。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。我药非止痊自病也,痊人病也。噫。君之富济于人,与夫家累千金,剥割人者则殊。如以古之豪贵之家待士,则怍矣。必以贤愚有别,慎保身名,无反招谤耳。祜复再拜。道士乃命酒自酌。才曙,遽辞而去。祜令人潜侦之。见道士化一大鹿,西走不知所之。出《潇湘录》
