《菜根谭》是明朝还初道人洪应明收集编著的一部论述修养、人生、处世、出世的语录集。其文字简炼明隽,兼采雅俗。似语录,而有语录所没有的趣味;似随笔,而有随笔所不易及的整饬;似训诫,而有训诫所缺乏的亲切醒豁。


《菜根谭》(心不所动、焉受诱惑)

耳目见闻为外贼,情欲意识为内贱。只是主人翁惺惺不昧,独坐堂中,贼便化为家人矣!

The ears can hear flattering sounds; the eyes can be dazzled by silver and gold. These effects are enemies encroaching from without, whereas carnal desires are robbers hidden within. You must maintain vigilance at all times against these enemies. Seat yourself in the central hall and equip yourself with a sober mind, and you will surely be able to turn your enemies into helpmates.

(保罗·怀特 译)


Sounds pleasant to the ear and spots pleasant to the eye may be likened to thieves without. Emotions and desires may be compared to thieves within. But so long as you can guard against exterior temptations by keeping your heart unswerving, both of them, within or without, will be transformed into obedient servants or good helpmates in your self-refinement.

(周文标 译)


Beautiful sounds and sights are thieves from without, and one's passions and ideas are thieves from within. But when the master, vigilant and clear-headed, always keeps the central role, then all thieves will turn family.

(蒋坚松 译)
