                            Pandora, the first woman Zeus made.  Her name means "all gifts".  At the time Pandora was in, people didn't have fear, plague, angry and so on.  Zeus kept all these things in a box but did not tell her, but asked her to kept an eye on the box.

                            She was, of course, very curious about the things inside.  And when she tried to shake the box in order to guess what was kept in the box, the box gave many voices of some spirits.  Those spirits said they would help her and played with her if she let them out.  Therefore, she opened the box.  As the box was open, the box threw out all the bad spirits, such as plague, fear, and hunger.  In fear, Pandora closed the box immediately, but all the bad one had already flown out.

                           In a word of relief, she also let the spirits of Hope out.  And Hope gave people the wish to fight against the bad emotion and sickness.
