1 景公欲以... :
景公問晏子曰:「吾欲服聖王之服,居聖王之室,如此,則諸侯其至乎?」

2 景公欲以... :
晏子對曰:「法其節儉則可,法其服,居其室,無益也。三王不同服而王,非以服致諸侯也,誠于愛民,果于行善,天下懷其德而歸其義,若其衣服節儉而眾說也。夫冠足以修敬,不務其飾;衣足以掩形禦寒,不務其美。衣不務于隅眥之削,冠無觚羸之理,身服不雜彩,首服不鏤刻。且古者嘗有紩衣攣領而王天下者其義好生而惡殺,節上而羨下,天下不朝其服,而共歸其義。古者嘗有處橧巢窟穴而不惡,予而不取,天下不朝其室,而共歸其仁。及三代作服,為益敬也,首服足以修敬,而不重也,身服足以行潔,而不害于動作。服之輕重便于身,用財之費順于民。其不為橧巢者,以避風也;其不為窟穴者,以避溼也。是故明堂之制,下之潤溼,不能及也;上之寒暑,不能入也。土事不文,木事不鏤,示民知節也。及其衰也,衣服之侈過足以敬,宮室之美過避潤濕,用力甚多,用財甚費,與民為讎。今君欲法聖王之服,不法其制,法其節儉也,則雖未成治,庶其有益也。今君窮臺榭之高,極汙池之深而不止,務于刻鏤之巧,文章之觀而不厭,則亦與民而讎矣。若臣之慮,恐國之危,而公不平也。公乃願致諸侯,不亦難乎!公之言過矣。」
