1 民杂:
民杂处而各有所能,所能者不同,此民之情也。大君者,太上也,兼畜下者也。下之所能不同,而皆上之用也。是以大君因民之能为资,尽包而畜之,无能去取焉。是故不设一方以求于人,故所求者无不足也。大君不择其下,故足。不择其下,则易为下矣。易为下则莫不容,莫不容故多下,多下之谓太上。君臣之道,臣事事而君无事,君逸乐而臣任劳。臣尽智力以善其事,而君无与焉,仰成而巳。故事无不治,治之正道然也。人君自任,而务为善以先下,则是代下负任蒙劳也,臣反逸矣。故曰:君人者,好为善以先下,则下不敢与君争为善以先君矣,皆私其所知以自覆掩,有过,则臣反责君,逆乱之道也。君之智,未必最贤于众也,以未最贤而欲以善尽被下,则不赡矣。若使君之智最贤,以一君而尽赡下则劳,劳则有倦,倦则衰,衰则复反于不赡之道也。是以人君自任而躬事,则臣不事事,是君臣易位也,谓之倒逆,倒逆则乱矣。人君苟任臣而勿自躬,则臣皆事事矣。是君臣之顺,治乱之分,不可不察也。
