All the gods and goddesses crowded around to make Pandora as beautiful as she could possibly be. Athena the weaver made Pandora a lovely dress. The Graces made her gold necklaces. The goddesses of the hours put spring flowers in her hair. Zeus told Epimetheus that he should marry Pandora. Pandora was very curious about what was in the box. She begged Epimetheus to let her open it, but he always said no. Out of the box flew every kind of trouble that people had never known about before: Pandora was very sorry now that she had opened the box!
She tried to catch the bad things and put them back in the box but it was too late. They all flew away. But the very last thing to fly out of the box, as Pandora sat there crying, was not as ugly as the others. In fact it was beautiful. We owe a permanent debt because they tricked Zeus with a bad sacrifice. And she does have some similarities to the older Egyptian goddess Isis. But Isis opens a coffin, not a box. It might turn out to be a bigger problem than you were expecting.
Maybe it will be more than you can handle! For example, what if you suspect that two of your friends have been talking about you behind your back? Should you ask one of them about it? What if it turns out that a lot more people were involved in this gossip than you thought? You might find out more than you really wanted to know.
Sometimes, the story says, we should let well enough alone. Hesiod wrote about BC , just after the alphabet reached Greece.
Thanks, it was very useful. Thanks for introducing me to an excellent song! I named my daughter pandora hope and she is everything wonderful in my life even though her birth was the beginning of my life with lupus. What a nice idea!

I just came from watching the new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, which has a lot about hope and how important hope is. Have you seen it?
I often use the analogy of Pandoras box to describe what I deal with as a first responder. I see death, sickness, tragedy, anxiety, worry, and some real evils of this world that man kind can do but inside I carry hope. Each call I go on it one of those evils I manage to capture and stuff back inside the box.
A daunting task with an immense burden to carry around.
