5 人間世:
匠石之齊,至乎曲轅,見櫟社樹。其大蔽數千牛,絜之百圍,其高臨山十仞而後有枝,其可以為舟者旁十數。觀者如市,匠伯不顧,遂行不輟。弟子厭觀之,走及匠石,曰:「自吾執斧斤以隨夫子,未嘗見材如此其美也。先生不肯視,行不輟,何邪?」曰:「已矣,勿言之矣!散木也,以為舟則沈,以為棺槨則速腐,以為器則速毀,以為門戶則液樠,以為柱則蠹。是不材之木也,無所可用,故能若是之壽。」匠石歸,櫟社見夢曰:「女將惡乎比予哉?若將比予於文木邪?夫柤、梨、橘、柚、果、蓏之屬,實熟則剝,剝則辱,大枝折,小枝泄。此以其能苦其生者也,故不終其天年而中道夭,自掊擊於世俗者也。物莫不若是。且予求無所可用久矣,幾死,乃今得之,為予大用。使予也而有用,且得有此大也邪?且也,若與予也皆物也,奈何哉其相物也?而幾死之散人,又惡知散木!」匠石覺而診其夢。弟子曰:「趣取無用,則為社何邪?」曰:「密!若無言!彼亦直寄焉,以為不知己者詬厲也。不為社者,且幾有翦乎!且也,彼其所保,與眾異,以義譽之,不亦遠乎!」
