樑上君子

在東漢初年,有個人叫陳寔。

有一天,一個小賊溜進了他的房間,躲在房樑上等著陳寔去睡覺再下手。

陳寔發現了小偷,把他的家人都召集在一起,說:“人不可以不自強。人不是天生就壞的,壞習慣往往是由不注意自身品性修養所致的。咱家房樑上這個人就是這樣。”

小偷聽到這話,從房樑上跳到地上,跪在陳寔面前,請求原諒,決心做個有用的人。

 

這個成語用來比喻小偷。

In the Eastern Han Dynasty (东汉), there was a man named Chen Shi (陈寔) .

One day, a thief slipped into his living-room. Hiding behind the beam, the thief waited for Chen Shi to fall asleep.

Chen Shi, finding the thief, called his family together, saying, "To be a upright man one must have aspirations. Men are not born evil. But if one gets used to doing evil things, it will be hard to reform. The gentleman above the beam is such a man."

The thief, hearing this, hurriedly jumped down and knelt on the ground to beg forgiveness.

 

This idiom is used to refer to a thief.
