1 服制像:
天地之生萬物也以養人,故其可適者以養身體,其可威者以為容服,禮之所為同也。劍之在左,青龍之象也。刀之在右,白虎之象也。韍之在前,朱鳥之象也。冠之在首,玄武之象也。四者,人之盛飾也。夫能通古今,別然不然,乃能服此也。蓋玄武者,貌之最嚴有威者也,其像在後,其服反居首,武之至而不用矣。聖人之所以超然,雖欲從之,末由也已。夫執介冑而後能拒敵者,故非聖人之所貴也。君子顯之於服,而勇武者消其誌於貌也矣。故文德為貴,而威武為下,此天下之所以永全也。於《春秋》何以言之?孔父義形於色,而奸臣不敢容邪;虞有宮之奇,而獻公為之不寐;晉厲之強,中國以寢尸流血不已。故武王克殷,裨冕而笏。虎賁之王說劍,安在勇猛必任武殺然後威。是以君子所服為上矣,故望之儼然者,亦已至矣,豈可不察乎!
