1 齐王使使... :
齐王使使者问赵威后。书未发,威后问使者曰:“岁亦无恙耶?民亦无恙耶?王亦无恙耶?”使者不说,曰:“臣奉使使威后,今不问王,而先问岁与民,岂先贱而后尊贵者乎?”威后曰:“不然。苟无岁,何以有民?苟无民,何以有君?故有问舍本而问末者耶?”乃进而问之曰:“齐有处士曰锺离子,无恙耶?是其为人也,有粮者亦食,无粮者亦食;有衣者亦衣,无衣者亦衣。是助王养其民也,何以至今不业也?叶阳子无恙乎?是其为人,哀鳏寡,恤孤独,振困穷,补不足。是助王息其民者也,何以至今不业也?北宫之女婴儿子无恙耶?彻其环瑱,至老不嫁,以养父母。是皆率民而出于孝情者也,胡为至今不朝也?此二士弗业,一女不朝,何以王齐国,子万民乎?于陵子仲尚存乎?是其为人也,上不臣于王,下不治其家,中不索交诸侯。此率民而出于无用者,何为至今不杀乎?”
