《焦先》

Library Resources
1 焦先:
焦先者,字孝然,河东人也,年一百七十岁。常食白石,以分与人,熟煮如芋食之。日日入山伐薪以施人,先自村头一家起,周而复始。负薪以置人门外,人见之,铺席与坐,为设食,先便坐。亦不与人语。负薪来,如不见人,便私置于门间,便去,连年如此。及魏受禅,居河之湄,结草为庵,独止其中。不设牀席。以草褥衬坐,其身垢污,浊如泥潦。或数日一食,行不由径,不与女人交游。衣弊。则卖薪以买故衣着之。冬夏单衣。太守董经,因往视之,又不肯语。经益以为贤。彼遭野火烧其庵,人往视之,见先危坐庵下不动,火过庵烬,先方徐徐而起,衣物悉不焦灼。又更作庵,天忽大雪,人屋多坏,先庵倒。人往不见所在,恐已冻死,乃共拆庵求之,见先熟卧于雪下,颜色赫然,气息休休,如盛暑醉卧之状。人知其异,多欲从学道,先曰:“我无道也。”或忽老忽少。如此二百馀岁。后与人别去,不知所适。所请者竟不得一言也。出《神仙传》
