This weeks fun phrase is “Every cloud has a silver lining”
Meaning: There’s reason for hope even in the bleakest situation.
History: As an observation the saying is sometimes unsupportable because the clouds are uniformly grey and lowering. Still, as an expression of hope it is old; John Milton had it in Comus (1634), wherein a woman lost in a wood takes hope in theses words:
” Was I deceived, or did a sable cloud turn forth her silver lining on the night?”
