Pandora

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.
