1 秦武王謂... :
秦武王謂甘茂曰:「寡人欲車通三川,以窺周室,而寡人死不朽乎?」甘茂對曰:「請之魏,約伐韓。」王令向壽輔行。甘茂至魏,謂向壽:「子歸告王曰:『魏聽臣矣,然願王勿攻也。』事成,盡以為子功。」向壽歸以告王,王迎甘茂於息壤。甘茂至,王問其故。對曰:「宜陽,大縣也,上黨、南陽積之久矣,名為縣,其實郡也。今王倍數限,行千里而攻之,難矣。臣聞張儀西並巴蜀之地,北取西河之外,南取上庸,天下不以為多張儀而賢先王。魏文侯令樂羊將,攻中山,三年而拔之,樂羊反而語功,文侯示之謗書一篋,樂羊再拜稽首曰:『此非臣之功,主君之力也。』今臣羈旅之臣也,樗裡疾、公孫衍二人者,挾韓而議,王必聽之,是王欺魏,而臣受公仲侈之願也。昔者曾子處費,費人有與曾子同名族者而殺人,人告曾子母曰:「曾參殺人。』曾子之母曰:『吾者不殺人。』置自若。有頃焉,人又曰:『曾參殺人。』其母尚置自若也。頃之,一人又告之曰:『曾參殺人。』其母懼,投杼逾牆牆而走。夫以曾參之賢,與母之信也,而三人疑之,則慈母不能信也。今臣賢不及曾子,而王之信臣又未若曾子之母也,疑臣者不適三人,臣恐王為臣之投杼也。」王曰:「寡人不聽也,請與子盟。」於是與之盟於息壤。果攻宜陽,五月而不能拔也。樗裡疾、公孫衍二人在,爭之王,王將聽之,召甘茂而告之。甘茂對曰:「息壤在彼。」王曰:「有之。」因悉起兵,復使甘茂攻之,遂拔宜陽。
