Keng answered,"I will tell them how many disadvantages the war brings to them." "Master,"said Mencius, "your aim is great, but your argument is not good.If you persuade the kings of Qin and Chu with profit, and they stop their military operations because they love profit.Then all belonging to those armies will rejoice in the cessation of war, and find their pleasure in the pursuit of profit.Ministers will serve their sovereign for the profit; sons will serve their fathers for profit; and younger brothers will serve their elder brothers from the same consideration.If the monarch and his subjects, father and son,younger brother and elder all abandon benevolence and rightness and aimed at making profit in human communication, there has never been a country that can escape being vanquished.If you persuade the kings of Qin and Chu with the consideration of benevolence and rightness, and they stop their military operations because they love benevolence and right-ness.Then all belonging to those armies will rejoice in the cessation of war, and find their pleasure in benevolence and rightness.Ministers will serve their sovereign with benevolence and right-ness; sons will serve their fathers, and younger brothers will serve their elder brothers in the same way.So monarch and his subjects,father and son, younger brother and elder all abandon the thought of profit, and treat each other with benevolence and rightness,there has never been a country without dominating the four seas.Why must you speak of profit?"
