Mencius - Book 7, Part 1, Chapter 12

Mencius said, 'Let the people be employed in the way which is intended to secure their ease, and though they be toiled, they will not murmur. Let them be put to death in the way which is intended to preserve their lives, and though they die, they will not murmur at him who puts them to death.'
~ James Legge translation via nothingistic.org ~
