    清仿宋 李公麟款 莊子寓言人物 設色絹本 冊頁十二開

    款識:龍眠居士李公麟製。

    題跋:
    (一)故夫智效一官、行比一鄉、德合一君而徵一國者,其自視也亦若此矣。而宋榮子猶然笑之。且舉世而譽之而不加勸,舉世而非之而不加沮,定乎內外之分,辯乎榮辱之境,斯已矣。彼其於世未數數然也。雖然,猶有未樹也。

    註:出自《莊子•內篇•逍遙游》

    (二)惠子謂莊子曰:「魏王貽我大瓠之種,我樹之而實五石,以盛水漿,其堅不能自舉也;剖之以為瓢,則瓠落無所容。非不呺然大也,吾為其無用而掊之。」莊子曰:「夫子固拙於用大矣。宋人有善為不龜手之藥者,世世以洴澼絖為事。客聞之,請買其方百金。聚族而謀曰:『我世世為洴澼絖,不過數金;今一朝而鬻技百金,請與之。』客得之,以說吳王。越有難,吳王使之將,冬與越人水戰,大敗越人,裂地而封之。能不龜手,一也;或以封,或不免於洴澼絖,則所用之異也。今子有五石之瓠,何不慮以為大樽而浮乎江湖,而憂其瓠落無所容?則夫子猶有蓬之心也夫!」

    註:出自《莊子•內篇•逍遙游》

    (三)麗之姬,艾封人之子也。晉國之始淂之也,涕泣沾襟,及至於王所,與王同匡牀,食芻豢,而後悔其泣也。予惡乎知夫死者不悔其始之蘄生乎?

    註:出自《莊子•內篇•齊物論》

    (四)夢飲酒者,旦而哭泣;夢哭泣者,旦而田獵。方其夢也,不知其夢也。夢之中又占其夢焉,覺而後知其夢也。且有大覺而後知此其大夢也,而愚者自以為覺,竊竊然知之。君乎,牧乎,固哉!丘也,與汝皆夢也;予謂汝夢,亦夢也。是其言也,其名為弔詭。萬世之後,而一遇大聖知其解者,是旦暮遇之也。

    註:出自《莊子•內篇•齊物論》

    (五)支離疏者,頤隱於臍,肩高於頂,會撮指天,五管在上,兩髀為脅。挫鍼治繲,足以餬口;鼓筴播精,足以食十人。上徵武士,則支離攘臂於其間;上有大役,則支離以有常疾不受功;上與病者粟,則受三鍾與十束薪。夫支離其形者,猶足以養其身,終其天年,又況支離其德者乎!

    註:出自《莊子•內篇•人間世》

    (六)西王母得之,坐乎少廣, 莫知其始,莫知其終。

    註:出自《莊子•內篇•大宗師》

    (七)秋水時至,百川灌河。涇流之大,兩涘渚崖之間,不辯牛馬。於是河伯欣然自喜,以天下之美為盡在己。順流而東,至於北海,東面而視,不見水端。於是焉河伯始旋其面目,望洋向若而歎曰:「野語有之曰:『聞道百,以為莫己若者。』我之謂也。且夫我嘗聞少仲尼之聞而輕伯夷之義者,始吾弗信。今我覩子之難窮也,吾非至於子之門則殆矣,吾長見笑於大方之家。」

    註:出自《莊子•外篇•秋水》

    (八)惠子相梁,莊子往見之。或謂惠子曰:「莊子來,欲代子相。」於是惠子恐,搜於國中,三日三夜。莊子往見之,曰:「南方有鳥,其名鹓鶵,子知之乎?夫鹓鶵,發於南海而飛於北海;非梧桐不止,非練實不實食,非醴泉不飲。於是鴟淂腐鼠,鹓鶵過之,仰而視之曰:『嚇!』今子欲以子之梁國而嚇我耶?」

    註:出自《莊子•外篇•秋水》

    (九)桓公田於澤,管仲御,見鬼焉。公撫管仲之手曰:「仲父何見?」對曰:「臣無所見。」公反,誒詒為病,數日不出。齊士有皇子告敖者:「公則自傷,鬼惡能傷公!夫忿滀之氣,散而不反,則為不足;上而不下,則使人善怒;下而不上,則使人善忘;不上不下,中身當心,則為病。」桓公曰:「然則有鬼乎?」曰:「有。沈有履,竈有髻。戶內之煩壤,雷霆處之;東北方之下者,倍阿、蠪躍之;西北方之下者,則泆陽處之。水有罔象,丘有峷,山有夔,野有方皇,澤有委蛇。」公曰:「請問委蛇之狀何如?」皇子曰:「委蛇,其大如轂,其長如轅,紫衣而朱冠。其為物也惡,聞雷車之聲,則捧其首而立。見之者殆乎霸。」桓公囅然而笑曰:「此寡人之所見者也。」於是正衣冠與之坐,不終日而不知病之去也。

    註:出自《莊子•外篇•達生》

    (十)宋元君夜半而夢人被髮闚阿門,曰:「予自宰路之淵,予為清江使河伯之所,漁者余且得予。」元君覺,使人占之,曰:「此神龜也。」君曰:「漁者有余且乎?」左右曰:「有。」君曰:「令余且會朝。」明口,余且朝。君曰:「漁何得?」對曰:「且之網得白龜焉,箕圓五尺,」君曰:「獻若之龜。」龜至,君再欲殺之,再欲活之,心疑,卜之,曰:「殺龜以卜吉。」乃刳龜,七十二鑽而無遺筴。仲尼曰:「神龜能見夢于元君,而不能避余且之網;知能七十二鑽而無遺策,不能避刳腸之患。則知有所困,神有所不及也。」

    註:出自《莊子•雜篇•外物》

    (十一)窮有八極,達有三必,形有六府。美、髯、長、大、壯、麗、勇、敢,八者俱過人也,因以是窮;緣循、偃仰、困畏不若人,三者俱通達。知慧外通,勇敢多怨,仁義多責。達生之情者傀,達於智者肖;達大命者隨,達小命者遭。

    註:出自《莊子•雜篇•列禦寇》

    (十二)是故慎到棄智去己,而緣不得已。冷汰於物,以為道理。曰:「知不知,將薄知而後鄰傷之者也。」

    註:出自《莊子•雜篇•天下》
