1 枸橼:
梁王嗜果,使使者求诸吴。吴人予之橘,王食之美。他日又求焉,予之柑,王食之尤美。则意其犹有美者,未予也,惎使者聘于吴而密访焉。御儿之鄙人,有植枸橼于庭者,其实大如瓜,使者见而愕之曰:“美哉!煌煌乎柑不如矣。”求之,弗予。归言于梁王,梁王曰:“吾固知吴人之靳也。”命使者以币请之,朝而进之,荐而后尝之。未毕一瓣,王舌缩而不能咽,齿柔而不能咀,希鼻顣额以让使者。使者以诮吴人,吴人曰:“吾国果之美者橘与柑也,既皆以应王求,无以尚矣,而王之求弗置,使者又不询而观诸其外美,宜乎所得之不称所求也。夫木产于土,有土斯有木,于是乎果实生焉。果之所产不唯吴,王不遍索,而独求之吴,吾恐枸橼之日至,而终无适合王口者也。”
