浩然之氣

    孟 子:我善養吾浩然之氣。其為氣也,至大至剛,以直養而無害,則塞于天地之閒。其為氣也,配義與道;無是,餒也。是集義所生者,非義襲而取之也。行有不慊於心,則餒矣。   Mencius:I am skillful in nourishing my great spirit. This is the passion-nature: it is exceedingly great, and exceedingly strong. being nourished by rectitude, and sustaining no injury, it fills...

反求諸己

作者:彭啟堯 繪圖:保 蓮 孟 子:禮人不答,反其敬,行有不得者皆反求諸己。 孟子說:待人以禮對方不報答,就要反省自己恭敬夠不夠。任何行為如果沒有取得效果,都要反過來檢查一下自己。 Mencius said: “Treating others politely but fails to appropriate due respect in return, you should conduct a self reflection. Any line of action that fails to bring about its intended...

杯水車薪

  作者:彭啟堯 繪圖:保 蓮   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...

捨生取義

作者:彭啟堯     繪圖:保蓮 孟子:生,亦我所欲也;義,亦我所欲也。二者不可得兼,舍生而取義者也。 解釋:生命是我所追求的,正義也是我所追求的。二者不能同時得到,便捨棄生命而奉行正道。 Mencius said:“My life is all that I have and righteousness is also the most precious thing in my life. If I cannot keep both of them, I...

綠木求魚

綠木求魚 孟子: 然則王之所大欲,可知已;欲闢土地,朝秦楚,蒞中國,而撫四夷也。以若所為,求若所欲,猶緣木而求魚也。王曰:若是其甚與?曰:殆有甚焉!緣木求魚,雖不得魚,無後災;以若所為,求若所欲,盡心力而為之,後必有災。 解釋: 孟子說:“那麼,大王的最大心願可以知道了,就是想擴張疆土,使秦國楚國來朝拜,君臨中原、安撫四周的民族。憑您的做法去追求實現您的心願,真好比是爬上樹去捉魚一樣。”宣王說:“像這麼嚴重嗎?” 孟子說:“只怕比這還嚴重呢!上樹捉魚,雖然捉不到魚,不會有後患。按您的做法去實現您的心願,費盡心力去做,到頭來必定有災禍。 Mencius said: “Then, your Majesty's desires are known to all. You wish to expand your territories, to force Qin and Chu to bow before you, to rule the entire...

一暴十寒

一暴十寒 孟子:雖有天下易生之物也,一日暴之,十日寒之,未有能生者也。不專心致志,則不得也。 解釋:即使有一種天下最容易生長的植物,曬它一天,又凍它十天,沒有能夠生長的。不專心致志地學習,也是學不會的。 Mencius said: "Suppose there is a plant that may grow very easily. If it exposes to the sun for one day and exposes to severe cold weather for ten...

心中無愧便是樂

孟子:君子有三樂,父母俱在,兄弟無故,一樂也;仰不愧於天,俯不作於人,二樂也;得天下英才而教育之,三樂也。 解釋:君子有三樂,父母都健在,兄弟無災無難,是第一樂;抬頭無愧於天,低頭無愧於人,是第二樂;得到天下的優秀人才,並對他們進行教育,是第三樂。 Mencius said :“A gentleman delights and takes pride in three things. Firstly, he whose parents are alive and healthy and whose brothers afford no cause for anxiety. Secondly, he...

安心立命

孟子:存其心,養其性,所以事天也。夭壽不貳,修身以俟之,所以立命也。
孟子金句漫畫 - 害人終害己

害人終害己

孟子:天作孽,猶可違;自作孽,不可活。解釋:自然界給人們造成災害,人們或許尚能逃避而得僥倖生存;但人們自作的罪孽,卻是要自行承擔惡果,是無法逃避的。

一樣咁衰

孟子:兵刃既接,棄甲曳兵而走。或百步而後止,或五十步而後止;以五十步笑百步,則何如?
