Celebrity Story: Yan Ying, Prime Minister of the Three Dynasties of Qi
The power of example is infinite! The excellent quality and great achievements of the ancient sages and sages will always inspire us to forge ahead and create brilliance again--- Zhuge Changqing
Everyone has his own idol in his life.
Zhuge Changqing admires the ancient sages, Emperor Shun, Zhu Yuanzhang, Mao Zedong and other ancient emperors, Yue Fei, Guan Gong and other powerful generals, Yan Ying, Confucius, Mencius and other sages and philosophers, as well as Gui Guzi, Jiang Taigong, Zhuge Liang, Liu Bowen, Zhang Liang, Liu Yong and other ancient celebrities, all of which are my idols.
The cosmic space is as bright as stars, and they constitute the most beautiful scenery.
How many times I meditate at night, how many times sages dream, how many times I write hard, and the cultural blood of the Chinese nation, I dare not be slack.
Just as you need to look at the Big Dipper in the night, you need to set an example in advance.
Only under the guidance of sages and sages, can people move forward persistently, can they have a brilliant life.
Yan Ying, the prime minister of the three dynasties of Qi, is a shining star in my life.
Yan Ying (? - 500 BC), a politician in the Spring and Autumn Period, was born in Laiyi Weiyi (now Gaomi). In 556 BC (the 26th year of Duke Ling of Qi), he served as the secretary of the state of Qi, and experienced three generations of Duke Ling, Duke Zhuang and Duke Jing.
He served the country and the people, and dared to remonstrate. One summer, the country of Qi was plagued by heavy rain, the walls collapsed, and the people were short of food and clothing. However, King Jing turned a deaf ear and drank heavily day and night. He repeatedly asked for relief, but Jinggong refused. He was so angry that he met Duke Jing and said, "The country is suffering from a severe disaster, and the people are hungry and cold. You are not considerate, but you are addicted to alcohol and sex. As a prime minister, Ying feels deeply guilty." After that, he bowed and resigned. The Duke Jing was ashamed and went to his home by car. He was deeply moved to see that his grain had been given to the people, so he immediately relieved the disaster and asked him to resume his post.
He is alert, eloquent and conscientious. Once on an envoy to the State of Chu, the king of Chu Ling wanted to insult him. Because of his short stature, he opened a small door beside the gate to "greet". He refused to enter, and said, "If you are going to the Dog Kingdom, you should enter the Dog Gate. If you are going to the Chu Kingdom, you should not enter from this gate." The visitor had to ask him to enter through the gate. When he saw the king of spirit, the king spoke rudely, and he calmly refuted it. The king of spirits begged him uninteresting and held a banquet to "entertain" him. When the wine was in full swing, a small official tied a man up. The King Ling asked the reason for the move, and the petty official reported that he was from the State of Qi and was guilty of theft. The king deliberately sneered: "The Qi people love to steal!" Ying immediately got up and said to each other: "I heard that orange is orange when it was born in Huainan, and orange when it was born in Huaibei. Its branches and leaves are similar, but the fruit taste is different, which is caused by the difference of water and soil. The Qi people do not steal in China, but they become thieves when they arrive in the State of Chu. Is it not the water and soil of Chu that makes it so?" The king of spirit met the wall again, and had to laugh at himself and said that the sages should not be teased at will.
He advocates thrift. He did it himself. "I don't care about meat, I don't care about clothes and silk." Duke Jing once went to his house in person, and saw that his residence was dark and narrow. He wanted to build a Chinese house for him several times, but was rejected. He doesn't like being attached to his voice. His friend Gao Quan is his housekeeper. He has worked hard for three years, but he was dismissed. Someone asked him why, and replied, "Only saints have no faults. I have heard nothing and made no mistakes. But Gao Zheng has never put forward different opinions or criticized him in the past three years, so he was dismissed."
Confucius once praised and said: "Save the people without boasting, and make up the three kings without boasting, and Yan Ziguo is a gentleman!" The handed down "Yan Zichun Qiu" was compiled by people in the Warring States Period who collected his words and deeds.
