Some ruler having sent a message of invitation to him, Chuang Tsze replied to the messenger, 'Have you seen, Sir, a sacrificial ox? It is robed with ornamental embroidery, and feasted on fresh grass and beans. But when it is led into the grand ancestral temple, though it wished to be again a solitary calf, would that be possible for it?'



或聘于庄子。庄子应其使曰:“子见夫犠牛乎?衣以文绣,食以刍叔,及其牵而入于大庙,虽欲为孤犊,其可得乎!”
