There is no English equivalent for the French word flâneur. Cassell's dictionary defines flâneur as a stroller, saunterer, drifter but none of these terms seems quite accurate. There is no English equivalent for the term, just as there is no Anglo-Saxon counterpart of that essentially Gallic individual, the deliberately aimless pedestrian, unencumbered by any obligation or sense of urgency, who, being French and therefore frugal, wastes nothing, including his time which he spends with the leisurely discrimination of a gourmet, savoring the multiple flavors of his city.
~Cornelia Otis Skinner
Morgan Freeman, my favorite actor, has a very distinctive speaking voice. He speaks with quiet confidence, calm reserve and comforting authority. There's compassion in his delivery and gravitas in his measured tones.
Mr. Freeman's voice is so compelling that anything he says rings true. And when he speaks, you cannot help but listen.
I want to play the flugelhorn
the way Morgan Freeman speaks.
