Mencius - Book 7, Part 2, Chapter 11

Mencius said, 'A man who loves fame may be able to decline a State of a thousand chariots; but if he be not really the man to do such a thing, it will appear in his countenance, in the matter of a dish of rice or a platter of soup.'
~ James Legge translation via nothingistic.org ~
