抱朴子外篇卷之八

时难》

抱朴子曰:尽节无隐者,可为也。若夫使言必纳而身必安者,须时。时之否也,夫奸凶之徒,妬所不逮,拥上抑下,恶直丑正,忧畏公方乏弹击邪枉,是以务除胜己以纾其诛。明主不世而出,庸君迷于皂白,既不能受用忠益,或乃宣泄至言。于是弘恭、石显之徒,饰巧辞以构象似,假至公以售私奸。令献长生之术者,反获立死之罪;进安上之计者,旋受危身之祸。故曰:非言之难也,谈之时难也。夫以贤说圣,犹未必即受。故伊尹干汤,至干七十也。以智告愚,则必不入。故文王谏纣,终于不纳也。言不见信之,犹可也。若乃李斯之诛韩非,庞涓之刖孙膑,上官之毁屈平,袁盎之中晁错,不可胜载也。为臣不易,岂一涂也哉。盖往而不反者,所以功在身后,而藏器俟时者,所以百无一遇。高勋之臣,旷代而一有,陷冰之徒,委积乎史策。悲夫,时之难遇也如此其甚哉。由兹以言,吾知渭滨吕尚之俦,岩间傅说之属,怀其王佐之器,抱其邈世之材,秉竿拥筑,老死于庸儿之伍,而遂不遭文王、高宗者,必不訾矣。
