4 五蠹:
古者文王处丰、镐之间,地方百里,行仁义而怀西戎,遂王天下。徐偃王处汉东,地方五百里,行仁义,割地而朝者三十有六国,荆文王恐其害己也,举兵伐徐,遂灭之。故文王行仁义而王天下,偃王行仁义而丧其国,是仁义用于古不用于今也。故曰:世异则事异。当舜之时,有苗不服,禹将伐之,舜曰:“不可。上德不厚而行武,非道也。”乃修教三年,执干戚舞,有苗乃服。共工之战,铁銛矩者及乎敌,铠甲不坚者伤乎体,是干戚用于古不用于今也。故曰:事异则备变。上古竞于道德,中世逐于智谋,当今争于气力。齐将攻鲁,鲁使子贡说之,齐人曰:“子言非不辩也,吾所欲者土地也,非斯言所谓也。”遂举兵伐鲁,去门十里以为界。故偃王仁义而徐亡,子贡辩智而鲁削。以是言之,夫仁义辩智,非所以持国也。去偃王之仁,息子贡之智,循徐、鲁之力使敌万乘,则齐、荆之欲不得行于二国矣。
