Mencius - Book 7, Part 1, Chapter 30

Mencius said, 'Benevolence and righteousness were natural to Yâo and Shun. T'ang and Wû made them their own. The five chiefs of the princes feigned them.

'Having borrowed them long and not returned them, how could it be known they did not own them?'
~ James Legge translation via ~
