Greed is good

君集之破高昌也,私取其珍宝;将士知之,竞为盗窃,君集不能禁,为有司所劾,诏下君集等狱。中书侍郎岑文本上疏,以为:“高昌昏迷,陛下命君集等讨而克之,不逾旬日,并付大理。虽君集等自挂网罗,恐海内之人疑陛下唯录其过而遗其功也。臣闻命将出师,主于克敌,苟能克敌,虽贪可赏;若其败绩,虽廉可诛。是以汉之李广利、陈汤,晋之王浚,隋之韩劾虎,皆负罪谴,人主以其有功,咸受封赏。由是观之,将帅之臣,廉慎者寡,贪求者众。是以黄石公《军势》曰:‘使智,使勇,使贪,使愚,故智者乐立其功,勇者好行其志,贪者急趋其利,愚者不计其死。’伏愿录其微劳,忘其大过,使君集等虽重升朝列,复备驱驰,虽非清贞之臣,犹得贪愚之将,斯则陛下虽屈法而德弥显,君集蒙宥而过更彰矣。”上乃释之。
