Living Without Hope
What would our lives look like without Hope? Is Hope a help or hindrance? When Pandora opened the lid to her jar all the evils that befall the human race escaped: “burdensome toil and sickness that brings death to men”, diseases and “a myriad other pains”. Only Hope remained. What was Hope doing in a jar full of “all the Spites that plague mankind: such as Old Age, Labor, Sickness, Insanity, vice, and Passion” (Graves 1955:145), unless Hope was an evil itself?
