群书治要360中英对照 | 天地为大矣,不诚则不能化万物


天地为大矣,不诚则不能化万物;圣人为智矣,不诚则不能化万民;父子为亲矣,不诚则疏;君上为尊矣,不诚则卑。夫(fú/ㄈㄨ/)诚者,君子之守,而政事之本也。(卷三十八 孙卿子)

(白话)天地可以说是最博大了,但不真诚就不能化育万物;圣人可以说是最睿智了,但不真诚就不能教化万民;父子可以说是最亲近了,但不真诚就会疏远;君王可以说是最尊贵了,但不真诚就不会被人尊重。因此真诚,乃君子遵循的品德操守,更是治理国家的根本。

Heaven and earth may be enormous but without sincerity they will not be able to give life to thousands of things. Sages may be intelligent but without sincerity they will not be able to transform thousands of people with their teachings. Relationship between parents and children may be intimate but without sincerity they will drift apart. Kings are considered the noblest by status but without sincerity they will not be respected. Hence, “Sincerity” is that which a superior person will honor, and it is also the foundation of a good government. Scroll 38: Sun Qing Zi
