    I'd love a collection of Cantus quotes so I'd like to hear some of your favorites. Here are some of mine:

    "Everything is important. Either that, or nothing is. I prefer the former."

    "There are no rules and those are the rules."

    "Should have brought my mittens."

    There will be motion in the stillness, and there will be music in the silence...

    Cantus: "Has the Silly Creature ever touched you?"
    Gobo: "Oh, no, I'm much too fast for it."
    Cantus: "Have you ever touched the Silly Creature?"
    Gobo: "No. Why should I?"
    Cantus: "Because you need to. You must let the Silly Creature touch you, and you must touch him. Once touched, he will see and so will you."

    I love that, because there's a hidden meaning behind those words. To touch not just physically, but emotionally on a more heartfelt level.

    And, of course...

    "Listen."

    "I fear I'm losing my implacable calm."

    That one's more in the delivery. Cantus turns away from Red and looks at the fourth wall, and his voice trembles a tad bit at the end. You say to yourself, "Red, you'd better be careful.":coy:

    "As far as I know, and I know pretty far."

    I use this quote often in day to day conversation :p haha

    Gobo: "But where do I look?"
    Cantus: "Wherever there is something to find."

    I like the lesson of that. Don't start with a specific end in mind; start the journey and one of the zillion ends will make itself known to you.

    this is a suuuuuper dead thread, but i'm adding to it anyway!
    "Listen, and hear what I say for a change." has always been one of my favorites. i love all his quotes, though they're more how he says them than what, or what he does during them. context is always important :coy:

    [wildly adds new quotes as i remember them]
    "You hear, but you don't listen." is another favorite one of mine. its message is clear, but vague in that cantus-y way.
    djfhs i'll make a list next time
