求人不如求己《俗语佛源》
宋代诗人苏东坡曾与方外交佛印禅师同游杭州寺院。东坡见大殿上的观世音菩萨手持数珠,东坡觉得奇怪,便问道:“彼自是观音,自诵其号,未审何谓?”佛印答道:“求人不如求己。”见宋·苏轼《问答录》。本来,观世音菩萨是人们求拜的对象。佛印就“自诵其号”而借题发挥,答了一句颇含机锋的话:“求人不如求己”,体现了禅宗“自力自度”的特色。后用“求人不如求己”谓求别人帮忙还不如靠自己努力。如清·曹庭栋《老老恒言》卷二:“世情世态,阅历久,看应烂熟。心衰面改,老更奚求。谚云:求人不如求己。”又如陈登科《风雷》第一部三十章:“何老九又略加沉思一下,发狠道:‘求人不如求己,俺去找素云问问清楚。’”(李明权)
求佛求一尊《俗语佛源》
大乘认为,一佛即一切佛,一切佛即一佛。拜佛当至诚专一。俗语“求佛求一尊”,比喻遇事不要乱求人,看准后,诚心诚意去求一人就可以了。如张恨水《金粉世家》第八六回:“你总不学一点交际手段,怎样混得出来?连七爷这样好说话的人,都不高兴了,别人还行吗?求佛求一尊,你这样子,还是请七爷多帮忙吧。”(李明权)
