Utopian Dreams – Simplicity III – failure

Posting the chunks I really want to remember of the beautiful book Utopian Dreams by Tobias Jones

Percy Smith, Pilsdon’s founder:

‘If Pilsdon teaches anything,’ he wrote in December 1960, ‘it teaches through failure and disappointment how far we fall short in our love.’ It was, he said, ‘a school for sinners and not a museum of saints’.
