Idioms and allusions
During the Warring States period, there was a high official in Qi State, named Yan Yao. King Xuan of Qi admired his name and called him into the palace. Yan Ran casually went into the palace and came to the steps in front of the palace. When he saw King Xuan waiting for him to see him, he stopped and stopped. When King Xuan saw this, he called out and said, "Yan Zuo, come here!" but he still didn't move. He called King Xuan and said, "king, come here!" King Xuan was very unhappy. When the ministers around him saw that Yan Zuo had no monarch, they all said, "king is a monarch, you are a subject. The king can ask you to come here, and you can also ask the king to come here. How can you do it?" he said, "I'm a king If you come to the king, it means that I admire his power; if the king comes, it means that he is courteous and virtuous. Instead of making me envy the power of the king, it's better to let the king be courteous and virtuous. " King Xuan of Qi was angry with him and said, "is it a king or a scholar?" Without thinking about it, Yan said, "of course, scholars are noble, but kings are not." King Xuan said, "is there any basis for you to say this?" Yan looked self-confident and said, "of course. Once upon a time, when the state of Qin attacked the state of Qi, the king of Qin once gave an order: anyone who dares to cut firewood within 50 steps of gaoshiliu's tomb will be killed! He also gave an order: if anyone can chop off the head of the king of Qi, he will be granted the title of Marquis of ten thousand families and the reward will be paid. It seems that the head of a living monarch is inferior to that of a dead scholar's tomb. " King Xuan of Qi was speechless and unhappy. Ministers came to the rescue: "Yan, come here! Yan, come here! Our king has a country of 1000 vehicles. Who dares to refuse? The king has what he wants, and the common people are obedient. You are so mean! "Yan retorted," you are not right! In the days of Dayu, there were many kingdoms. Why? Because he respected scholars. In the Shang Tang era, there were 3000 princes. Today, there are only 24 lonely people. From this point of view, it is the key to gain and loss to attach importance to scholars. From ancient times to the present, no one has been able to become famous for not doing practical things. Therefore, your father should be ashamed not to consult others frequently and not to learn from people of low status. " When King Xuan heard this, he felt guilty and said, "I'm asking for nothing. After listening to your comments, I know the villain's behavior. I hope you will accept me as your student. You will live with me in the future. I promise you that you will have meat to eat, you will have a car to go out, and your wife and children will all be well dressed. " Yan said with thanks: "jade, originally produced in the mountains, will be destroyed if it is processed by craftsmen. Although it is still precious, it has lost its original appearance after all. Scholars live in remote areas. If they are selected, they will enjoy wealth. It's not that they can't be noble and distinguished, but their external appearance and inner world will be destroyed. Therefore, I would rather hope that the king would let me go back and eat late every day, which is as delicious as meat. Walking steadily and slowly is enough to be taken as a bus. Living in peace is no worse than being in power. Quiet, pure self-defense, enjoy it. It's your king who ordered me to speak, and it's my Yan who declared my loyalty. " Yan said that, he bowed to King Xuan twice, and then he left.
