孟子:
以一杯水救一車薪之火也,不熄,則謂之水不勝火,此又與於不仁之甚者也。

解釋:用一小杯水去撲滅一車木柴燃起的大火,火不滅,便說水不勝火,這與那種很不仁義的人差不多。

 

Mencius said:“fail to put off the fire of a waggon-load of firewood with a glass of water and thus conclude that water cannot extinguish fire is the worst excuse for those who do not practice righteousness.” (譯英:蘇國麟)
