“In my opinion, there are two important factors in a person's life - time and place. Today we are in a beautiful place that was invented by mankind - a university, at one of the most beautiful moments of human life - the celebration of the New Year. On the eve of this holiday, I would like to wish you all good health, success, prosperity, positivity, hard work, patience, love, joy, beauty and peace. On this day I also want to thank my colleagues, the entire faculty of Moscow State University and its Baku branch for their contribution over the twelve years of our university’s activities. I also want to thank all our students - the main people of our university, who we love as our sons and daughters, putting a lot of spiritual energy in them. There is a wonderful quote by Aristotle 'The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet', which means a lot. Bitter roots are a daily concern for studying, forcing oneself, when one may not want to study, but want more rest. But you will understand these fruits of education years later. Therefore, appreciate Moscow State University, your youth, your student years - it's a wonderful time in human life. And always remember those who gave you this knowledge, feelings of unity and friendship between an adult and a young generation. There is a very poetical saying by the famous Lebanese philosopher, artist, poet and writer of the late 19th-early 20th centuries Gibran Khalil Gibran: "Inspiration will always sing; inspiration will never explain." Therefore, I once again congratulate you on this holiday, so that you always sing, and we will explain less to you," rector of the Baku branch of Moscow State University Nargiz Pashayeva said.
