故事:唐代河北涿郡,有個叫趙廣漢的人,初在地方當個小官。因為他廉潔,做事又很努力,所以一直升到京兆尹(首都市長)。那時,恰逢漢昭帝去世,京郊新豐縣官杜建負責建築昭帝的陵園。這位杜建交友廣闊,常常利用職權和一群狐朋狗黨做一些非法勾當。杜建的壞事被趙廣漢知道了,趙暗示他改變行為。可是杜某置若罔聞。趙廣漢便將他拘捕下獄。京城裡有些達官貴人都來為他求情。趙廣漢一向厭惡那幫貴人平時為非作歹,包庇壞人,便立即將杜建殺了。於是京城裡的達官貴人都對趙廣漢望而生畏。
在漢宣帝執政時代,趙廣漢不畏強權,一心為國,所以甚得宣帝的信任和器重。趙廣漢喜歡用世吏子弟,那些年輕人最愛逞一時的銳氣,逢到一點事就將它迅速擴大,完全沒有轉圜的餘地。最後,趙廣漢終被貴戚們謀害。

用法:有些人一肚子草包,但喜歡虛張聲勢,搬弄是非,對他不喜歡的人往往“遇事生風”,暗中誹謗。
故事英譯:At Zhu County (Zhu Xian Hebei today) in Tang Dynasty, there was a low-rank official in local government, named Zhao Guanghan, was very incorruptible and serious to do work, so he was promoted smoothly to the premier post from a minor official. In the meantime, it happened that Emperor Zhao Xuan of Han died, and Mayor Du Jian of Xin Feng County, nearby the capital, was in charge of building the imperial mausoleum at Xin Feng County. However, Mr. Du was good in making friends and take advantage of his power to collude wrongdoings with his evil associates. Du Jian\'s wrongdoing was learned by Zhao Guanghan, and Zhao dropped a hint that Du Jian had to change his behavior. However, Mr. Du ignored Zhao\'s implication, therefore Zhao took Du in prison immediately. Then, the high officials and nobles (VIPS) in the capital all went to see Zhao for pardoning Du. While Zhao guanghan always disliked those VIPS who all the time did evils and harbored the wrongdoers, so Zhao killed Du Jian immediately. Therefore, all the high officials and nobles in the capital were terrified by sight of Zhao Guanghan.
During the reign of Emperor Xuan of Han, because Zhao feared not the VIPs\' power and influence, and all his efforts were for his nation, so he was trusted and supported by Emperor Xuan. He liked to use those young men to be his key officials, whose fathers or brothers were the elder officials. However, those young officials liked to show their sharp revolution spirit, and liked to have things to be magnified quickly without negotiating or interceding space. Finally, Zhao Guanghan was murdered by those high officials and nobles.
