Cants Quotes

I have a notion that, at big fires, a moment of extreme suspense can sometimes occur, when the jets of water slacken off, the firemen no longer climb, no one moves a muscle. Without a sound, a high black wall of masonry cants over up above, the fire blazing behind it, and, without a sound, leans, about to topple. Everyone stands waiting, shoulders tensed, faces drawn in around their eyes, for the terrible crash. That is how the silence is here.
— Rainer Maria Rilke —

I had to go shopping further and further away from my apartment. Sometimes, when a bus came by my pick up point, one of the Mc Cants was standing by the driver telling him not to stop there. They even stood outside the factory I worked at holding up signs that read "This factory employs a murderer". From Fear and Retribution

— The Prophet Of Life

I simply state that I'm a product of a versatile mind in a restless generation-with every reason to throw my mind and pen in with the radicals. Even if, deep in my heart, I thought we were all blind atoms in a world as limited as a stroke of a pendulum, I and my sort would struggle against tradition; try, at least, to displace old cants with new ones. I've thought I was right about life at various times, but faith is difficult. One thing I know. If living isn't seeking for the grail it may be a damned amusing game.

— F. Scott Fitzgerald
