治辨之極也,彊固之本也,威行之道也,功名之總也。王公由之,所以一天下,臣諸侯也;弗由之,所以捐社稷也。故堅革利兵不足以為勝,高城深池不足以為固,嚴令繁刑不足以為威。由其道則行,不由其道則廢。楚人鮫革犀兕,所以為甲,堅如金石;宛之鉅鐵施,鉆如蜂蠆,輕利剽遫,卒如熛風。然而兵殆於垂涉,唐昧死焉;莊蹻起,楚分而為四參。是豈無堅革利兵哉?其所以統之者非其道故也。汝潁以為險,江漢以為池,阻之以鄧林,緣之以方城。然而秦師至鄢郢,舉若振槁。是豈無固塞險阻哉?其所以統之者非其道故也。紂剖比干,囚箕子,為炮格,刑殺無辜,時臣下懔然,莫必其命。然而周師至,而令不行乎下,不能用其民。是豈令不嚴,刑不陖哉?其所以統之者非其道故也。
