140 杂事五:
齐有闾丘邛年十八,道鞍宣王曰:“家贫亲老,愿得小仕。”宣王曰:“子年尚稚,未可也。”闾丘邛曰:“不然,昔有颛顼行年十二而治天下,秦项橐七岁为圣人师,由此观之,邛不肖耳,年不稚矣。”宣王曰:“未有咫角骖驹而能服重致远者也,由此观之,夫士亦华发堕颠而后可用耳。”闾丘邛曰:“不然。夫尺有所短,寸有所长,骅骝绿骥,天下之俊马也,使之与狸鼬试于釜灶之间,其疾未必能过狸鼬也;黄鹄白鹤,一举千里,使之与燕服翼,试之堂庑之下,庐室之间,其便未必能过燕服翼也。辟闾巨阙,天下之利器也,击石不缺,刺石不锉,使之与管槁决目出眯,其便未必能过管槁也,由此观之,华发堕颠与邛,何以异哉?”宣王曰:“善。子有善言,何见寡人之晚也?”;云霞充咽则夺日月之明,谗人在侧,是见晚也。《》曰:‘听言则对,i言则退。’庸得进乎?”宣王拊轼曰:“寡人有过。”遂载与之俱归而用焉。故孔子曰:“后生可畏,安知来者之不如今?”此之谓也。
