害人終害己

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...

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 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
