Κι ας μη γίνεται λόγος, μετά από αυτό, για την εργασία, για την ηθική αξία της εργασίας θέλω να πω. Είμαι υποχρεωμένος να δεχθώ την ιδέα της εργασίας σαν υλική αναγκαιότητα, απ' αυτή την άποψη είμαι ένθερμος υποστηρικτής του καλύτερου, του δικαιότερου καταμερισμού της. Αν υποθέσουμε ότι οι άχαρες υποχρεώσεις της ζωής μού το επιβάλλουν, έστω, αν ομως μου ζητήσουν να πιστέψω στην εργασία, να δείξω σεβασμό για τη δική μου, ή των άλλων, ποτέ. Προτιμώ, ακόμα μια φορά, να περπατώ μέσα στη νύχτα, παρά να πιστέψω πως είμαι αυτος που περπατάει μέσα στο φως. Δεν ωφελεί σε τίποτα να' σαι ζωντανός, την ώρα που δουλεύεις. Το γεγονός απ' όπου καθένας μας έχει το δικαίωμα να περιμένει την αποκάλυψη του νοήματος της ίδιας του της ζωής, αυτό το γεγονός που ίσως δεν έχω ακόμα βρει αλλά που στον δρόμο του αναζητώ τον ίδιο μου τον εαυτό, δεν βρίσκεται με αντάλλαγμα την εργασία.
I often ask, "What do you want to work at? If you have the chance. When you get out of school, college, the service, etc." Some answer right off and tell their definite plans and projects, highly approved by Papa. I'm pleased for them* but it's a bit boring, because they are such squares. Quite a few will, with prompting, come out with astounding stereotyped, conceited fantasies, such as becoming a movie actor when they are "discovered" "like Marlon Brando, but in my own way." Very rarely somebody will, maybe defiantly and defensively, maybe diffidently but proudly, make you know that he knows very well what he is going to do; it is something great; and he is indeed already doing it, which is the real test. The usual answer, perhaps the normal answer, is "I don't know," meaning, "I'm looking; I haven't found the right thing; it's discouraging but not hopeless." But the terrible answer is, "Nothing." The young man doesn't want to do anything. I remember talking to half a dozen young fellows at Van Wagner's Beach outside of Hamilton, Ontario; and all of them had this one thing to say: "Nothing." They didn't believe that what to work at was the kind of thing one wanted. They rather expected that two or three of them would work for the electric company in town, but they couldn't care less, I turned away from the conversation abruptly because of the uncontrollable burning tears in my eyes and constriction in my chest. Not feeling sorry for them, but tears of frank dismay for the waste of our humanity (they were nice kids). And it is out of that incident that many years later I am writing this book.
