6 王充王符... :
夫帝王之所尊敬者天也,皇天之所愛育者人也。今人臣受君之重位,牧天之所愛,焉可以不安而利之,養而濟之哉?是以君子任職則思利人,達上則思進賢,故居上而下不怨,在前而後不恨也。》稱「天工人其代之」。王者法天而建官,故明主不敢以私授,忠臣不敢以虛受。竊人之財猶謂之盜,況偷天官以私己乎!以罪犯人,必加誅罰,況乃犯天,得無咎乎?夫五世之臣,以道事君,澤及草木,仁被率土,是以福祚流衍,本支百世。季世之臣,以諂媚主,不思順天,專杖殺伐。白起、蒙恬,秦以為功,天以為賊;息夫、董賢,主以為忠,天以為盜。《》曰:「德薄而位尊,智小而謀大,鮮不及矣。」是故德不稱,其禍必酷;能不稱,其殃必大。夫竊位之人,天奪其鑒。雖有明察之資,仁義之志,一旦富貴,則背親捐舊,喪其本心,疏骨肉而親便辟,薄知友而厚犬馬,寧見朽貫千萬,而不忍貸人一錢,情知積粟腐倉,而不忍貸人一斗,骨肉怨望於家,細人謗讟於道。前人以敗,後爭襲之,誠可傷也。
