Mencius. Book IV: Lî Lâu. Part I. Chapter XXV.

Legge's summary: A further and more direct reproof of Yo-chang.

Mencius, addressing the disciple Yo-chang, said to him, 'Your coming here in the train of Tsze-âo was only because of the food and the drink. I could not have thought that you, having learned the doctrine of the ancients, would have acted with a view to eating and drinking.'
