Legend has it, Pandora, a princess of ancient Greece, was given a gift, a mysterious box, by gods jealous of her beauty. She was told never to open the box. But one day, overcome by curiosity and temptation, she lifted the lid to peek in, letting loose the disease and madness. But a compassionate god let her close the box in time to capture the one antidote that make life’s misery bearable: hope.

Hope, does more than offer a bit of solace amid problems; it plays a surprisingly potent role in life, offering an advantage in realms as diverse as life achievement and bearing up in onerous jobs. Hope is the sunny view that everything will turn out all right. To be more specific, hope is believing you have both the will and the way to accomplish your goals, whatever they may be.

So let it be written, so let it be done.
