      • Oh; does that mean “hope” is an individual vs. universal expectation, not “abandon all hope ye who enter here?” Most people have collections of hope in various parts of life. They may discover some hopes will not be fulfilled, which is both a disappointment and a relief of that burden.

      • Yes, individual. I think hope can be useful, but in the long run, it becomes at odds with enjoying the journey rather than constantly putting the burden of enjoyment on the destination. I suspect this is the meaning behind hope being in Pandora’s box with the rest of the evils.
