- I don't know where else to put this other than here, so... In the legend of Pandora's Box, Pandora's curiosity got the better of her and she opened said aforementioned box, and in doing so let out all of the evils in the world. She managed to get the lid shut again just in time to trap one last thing; hope. So... the things in the box to start weren't a part of the world right? So, what, we have no hope because she closed the box? Or it's the other way around and we have hope but no evil?
- Possibly it was implying that hope was but another evil: people without hope do nothing but toil without expecting things to improve. Hope gives humanity both the expectation that things will get better AND the break if/when they do not.
