A man takes a job, you know, and that job becomes what he is.

- 職につけば、その職がお前となるんだ


映画『Taxi Driver』。仲間のタクシードライバーが、ここから抜け出して、何かしたいという相棒に言うセリフ。

職業とはそういうものじゃないか、と気づかされるコトバ。

「職業・人格一体説」みたいな話だろうか。

考えてみれば、一般に社会の人々とのつながりは、おおむね、その人の職業が接点となる。

人とは、その人の人格といういコア層の上に職業という層を形成し、二重構造で社会に参加する。

社会から見れば、仕事とは、その人物そのものだから、あきらめて、その仕事を好きになろう、好きになれないなら、辞めるしかない。


Travis: Yeah, I got me a real down, real...I just wanna go out and, and you know like
really, really, really do somethin'.

Wizard: The taxi life you mean?

Travis: Yeah, well. Naw, I don't know. I just wanna go out. I really, you know, I really wanna, I got some bad ideas in my head, I just...

Wizard: Look, look at it this way, you know uh, a man, a man takes a job, you know, and that job, I mean like that, and that it becomes what he is. You know like uh, you do a thing and that's what you are. Like I've been a, I've been a cabbie for seventeen years, ten years at night and I still don't own my own cab. You know why? 'Cause I don't want to. I must be what I, what I want. You know, to be on the night shift drivin' somebody else's cab. Understand? You, you, you become, you get a job, you you become the job. One guy lives in Brooklyn, one guy lives in Sutton Place, you get a lawyer, another guy's a doctor, another guy dies, another guy gets well, and you know, people are born. I envy you your youth. Go out and get laid. Get drunk, you know, do anything. 'Cause you got no choice anyway. I mean we're all ****ed, more or less you know.

Travis: Yeah, I don't know. That's about the dumbest thing I ever heard.

Wizard: I'm not Bertrand Russell. Well what do ya want. I'm a cabbie you know. What do I know? I mean, I don't even know what the **** you're talkin' about.

Travis: Yeah I don't know. Maybe I don't know either.

Wizard: Don't worry so much. Relax Killer, you're gonna be all right. I know I seen a lot of people and uh, I know.

Travis: That's the dumbest thing I ever heard.
