Excerpt

財非其財者也。上好仁以愛其下, 則下好義以忠其上;所以事必有終,而府庫之財無悖出之患也。孟獻子 曰﹕“畜馬乘不察於雞豚,伐冰之家不畜牛羊,百乘之家不畜聚斂之臣,與其 有聚斂之臣,寧有盜臣。”此謂國不以利為利,以義為利也。畜,許六反。 乘、斂,並去聲。孟獻子,魯之賢大夫仲孫蔑也。畜馬乘,士初試為大夫者 也。伐冰之家,卿大夫以上,喪祭用冰者也。百乘之家,有采地者也。君子寧 亡己之財,而不忍傷民之力;故寧有盜臣,而不畜聚斂之臣。此謂以下,釋獻 子之言也。長國家而務財用者,必自小人矣。彼為善之,小人之使為國家,菑 害並至。雖有善者,亦無如之何矣!此謂國不以利為利,以義為利也。長,上 聲。“彼為善之”,此句上下,疑有闕文誤字。自,由也,言由小人導之也。 此一節,深明以利為利之害,而重言以結之,其丁寧之意切矣。 右傳之十章。釋治國平天下。此章之義,務在與民同好惡而不專其利,皆 推廣絜矩之意也。能如是,則親賢樂利各得其所,而天下平矣。凡傳十章﹕前 四章統論綱領指趣,後六章細論條目功夫。其第五章乃明善之要,第六章乃誠 身之本,在初學尤為當務之急,讀者不可以其近而忽之也。

Author of the Day

A. W. Exley
When A.W. Exley isn't deciphering hieroglyphs or riding her horse sidesaddle, she is thinking up plots for her next best-seller. Nefertiti's Heart is a beautiful mixture of all Exley's passions in life, set in a Steampunk society, featuring a very Egyptian theme. As our Author of the Day, she chats with us about her fascination with Egypt, why she picked an alternate universe for Nefertiti and how she shaped the book.
