Any line of action that fails to bring about its intended result, one must re-examine one’s attitude.”   (蘇國麟英譯)   香港孟子學院提供,版權所有

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 days, the plant may never grow. Likewise, one who does...

Firstly, he whose parents are alive and healthy and whose brothers afford no cause for anxiety. Secondly, he whose deeds meet God's approval as well as just and...

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.
