“how much emotion is invested in symbols…”

“I was stunned by the level of hate and anger that surrounded that particular issue. And it was so interesting as I looked back. It wasn’t interesting at the time. It became interesting afterwards, and I looked back, and I thought about how much – how much emotion is invested in symbols, as opposed to substance.”

Robert Khayat, former Chancellor at University of Mississippi (1995-2009).
