A strong mind always hopes, and has always cause to hope.Still, weak minds live always in hope. No need to act 'cause hope will provide.Polybius
PandoraEmphasis is mine. The jar contained evil and hope was there with it being also evil.
When Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Epimetheus, Prometheus' brother. With her, Pandora had a jar which she was not to open under any circumstance. Impelled by her natural curiosity, Pandora opened the jar, and all evil contained escaped and spread over the earth. She hastened to close the lid, but the whole contents of the jar had escaped, except for one thing which lay at the bottom, and that was Hope.
