During the best of times and the worst of times, we must always remember that Hope was the last spirit in Pandora’s Box; she captured it just in time as a last refuge for humanity.
“Only Hope was left within her unbreakable house,
she remained under the lip of the jar,
and did not fly away.”- Hesiod
Here is Pandora and the eternal possibility of Hope.
