Nikolay Drozdov often asked what animal he associates himself. Once the host has decided to reveal the truth.
“According to the Eastern horoscope I am a Buffalo. And the internal too. I am hardworking, a lot of thinking, analyzing, doing everything slowly, but as it should. I have a favorite expression, which belongs to Sergei Korolev: “If done quickly and poorly, everyone will forget that quickly, but will long remember, what is bad. And Vice versa. Soon forget what he was doing for a long time, and never forget, that did well.” The principle upon which I work and live,” said the presenter.

“I have asthenic Constitution, Schwarzenegger me not to do, no matter how much I sway. I have never tried to set any records. The main thing – health. But vegetarianism is a really vital position emanating from the philosophy of yoga. I believe that this way is very right for a person. Our stomach is well adapted to vegetable food, but to digest animal need large amounts of energy. In addition, I am calm for I do not kill animals,” he said.
ABOUT MONEY AND THE SPIRIT OF THE TIME
Fans Drozdov noted that it is not similar to modern anchors. As a person who grew up in the Soviet Union, Nikolai Nikolaevich different other views on life. The host is willing to recognize.
Nikolai Drozdov: “I keep thinking about a successor”
“For me money is not important. I’m a man from the Soviet time. For me the most important principles, one of which is improper to talk about money, ask about the salary and perquisites, etc. From the side you would think that I the old regime. If a woman wears a coat fit and help. I hint to my students: “Go, give coat to girl”. And they at me stare. And the truth is, there is something to admire. Now, you know, emancipation. I helped the lady, as she has outraged: “okay, Okay, I myself.” What are you, comrades? And how do you educate the youth? This must have something to do. In this case, I think it is better to be old regime”, – he noted.
RELIGION AND MONASTERIES
Interestingly, in the family of Nikolai Drozdov was the priests. The host is the great-great-grandson of St. Philaret, Metropolitan of Moscow and Kolomna. It is famous for being laid the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, and wrote a Manifesto about the liberation of peasants from serfdom, published February 19, 1861. By the way, grandson Drozdov also decided to name Filaret.
According to Nicholas, he learned about their relationship with a significant person in the history of Russia from his father. In the 1950s, when the future scientist was still in school, his father took him on a tour to the Historical Museum. There was a lifetime portrait of St. Philaret. In those days he was not yet canonized. “This is your great-great-great-grandfather, just don’t tell anybody. And then, maybe, will remember when and I’ll be gone,” – said Drozdov parent.

In 1994, he was canonized. The TV star attended the service. After years Drozdov participated in the transfer of the relics of Filaret of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.
“It was an amazing event. Remember, we went with the relics to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and it was necessary to wait, when it will end service. About an hour we waited in a nearby Church, and all this time I stood near the relics. But the Holy relics – they are more alive than any of us, they pose such a life force! This was probably the happiest time in my life,” recalled Nicholas.
In the same interview Drozdov asked did he ever become a priest. Speaking to reporters, he said that often happens in different monasteries. According to the scientist, he likes to visit these places.
“A priest – no, but to go to the monks for me, it is quite possible. Today I often visit monasteries. Look. To me there all very much. Maybe exercise I can’t do that, but at least dream… Recently was in the Gethsemane skete, it is North of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra. It was just founded by St. Philaret. Monastic cells there — underground. When the Abbot of the monastery showed me these cells, I said that as if there wanted to live. And he said, “For you always free the cell over there.” And the cells are neat, whitewashed, light, table, high chair, cot,” – said the TV star in June 2012.
ABOUT THE FAITH AND HELP IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS
As recognized by Nikolay Drozdov, faith is for him of great importance. According to the presenter, “it does”.
“Must be a never-ending spiritual growth, self-improvement. How can I do it. Faith has great power. You have to believe in God and, of course, to pray. In difficult circumstances often call: “Let us pray, and God will provide”. You only need to sincerely turn to the Lord, to sincerely ask for help. Once in the expedition in Kamchatka we had to urgently fly by helicopter to the mountains. But the weather was terrible, there was almost no visibility. And I said, “Pray and go to bed! And tomorrow you’ll see, weather is what we need!” Indeed, the morning was clear and Sunny” – he recalled.

In the Elevator met. No idea how I lived without it. I think people without a family as an ant without ant. With his wife we have been together for many years, raised two daughters. My wife teaches biology. Daughter went in my footsteps: Hope – biologist, and Elena is a vet. Now raising grandchildren!” – said the scientist.
In 2008, the eldest daughter of the TV presenter gave birth to a charming Filaret.
“With such a beautiful name he can’t grow a bad person to do bad things. At least, so we like to think. Should be responsibility and high spirituality of the person wearing the name,” – said Nikolai Nikolaevich.
According to Drozdova, he sincerely is proud of the eldest grandson, who is studying in cadet school. As noted by the presenter, the whole family supported the decision Filaret. Nicholas calls the young man “defender of the homeland”.
“Our family had a lot of books on biology, and I was telling my daughters about their expeditions and discoveries. But often to have children, I couldn’t, I simply had no time, I worked too hard. I could probably give them a different upbringing. Because I know how and what really happened or did not happen. Grandson, I pay more attention Filaret enjoys painting, ceramics, playing the accordion. I am very proud of them”, – shared the leading.
