1 服制像:
天地之生万物也以养人,故其可适者以养身体,其可威者以为容服,礼之所为同也。剑之在左,青龙之象也。刀之在右,白虎之象也。韍之在前,朱鸟之象也。冠之在首,玄武之象也。四者,人之盛饰也。夫能通古今,别然不然,乃能服此也。盖玄武者,貌之最严有威者也,其像在后,其服反居首,武之至而不用矣。圣人之所以超然,虽欲从之,末由也已。夫执介胄而后能拒敌者,故非圣人之所贵也。君子显之于服,而勇武者消其志于貌也矣。故文德为贵,而威武为下,此天下之所以永全也。于《春秋》何以言之?孔父义形于色,而奸臣不敢容邪;虞有宫之奇,而献公为之不寐;晋厉之强,中国以寝尸流血不已。故武王克殷,裨冕而笏。虎贲之王说剑,安在勇猛必任武杀然后威。是以君子所服为上矣,故望之俨然者,亦已至矣,岂可不察乎!
