Rudolf Nureyev was mentioned in a dance article I read this week.  It reminded me of something I had read about him long ago.    

When Nureyev was young, his father hated his interest in ballet and used to beat him to make him give up dance.  Nureyev’s passion for dancing was too strong and he attended classes despite the risk of his father’s violence.

Nureyev’s comment on this was,  “Some men are born stronger than their fathers.”
