問女昆弟不問男昆弟,所以遠别也,詩曰,彼君子女,綢直

周列國 首句:齊杞梁殖之妻

Warring States after Zhou: The Wife of Qi Liang of Qi

齊杞梁殖之妻也,齊莊公襲莒,殖戰而死,莊公歸遇其
妻,使使者吊之於路,杞梁妻曰,今殖有罪,君何辱命焉,若
令殖免於罪,則賤妾有先人之敝廬在,下妾不得與郊吊,
於是莊公乃還車詣其室成禮,然後去,杞梁之妻無子,内
外皆無五属之親,既無所歸,乃枕其夫之屍於城下而哭,
内誠,動人,道路過者莫不為之揮涕,十日而城為之崩,既
葬,曰吾何歸矣,夫婦人必有所倚者,父在則倚父,夫在則
倚夫,子在則倚子,今吾上則無父,中則無夫,下則無子,内
無所依以見吾誠,外無所倚以見吾節,吾豈能更二哉,亦
死而已,遂赴淄水而死,君子謂杞梁之妻貞而知禮,
