"cannot" or "can't"

@CK: many thanks!
As a proverb, and as classified by you, my translation [Nobody can...]
does not fit and you were right to untie the proverbs stricto sensu.
But as far as I'm concerned, it was a tentative contextual translation of my Kabyle sentence.

En tant que proverbe, et tel que classé par vous, ma traduction [Nobody can...]
ne correspond pas et vous avez eu raison de la délier des proverbes stricto sensu. Mais, en ce qui me concerne, c'était une tentative de traduction contextuelle de ma phrase kabyle.

@Seael
Since I changed my sentence from the incorrect form [containing the mistake can not] "You cannot can make an omelette without breaking eggs" to another "Nobody can make an omelette without breaking eggs",
my answer to you disapperaed or I don't see it.
I answered to thank you.
And I answer you again.
