    CAN'T but do

    Hi,

    http://www.macmillandictionary.com/d...annot-help-but

    - As I look back over my career, I cannot but smile.

    This form is what I always see in dicrionaries. I would like to ask if we can use 'can't' instead of 'cannot.'

    - As I look back over my career, I can't but smile.

    Thank you.
