"Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining"



Every cloud has a silver lining means that you should never feel hopeless because difficult times always lead to better days.

Example: "What am I going to do? My girlfriend has left me again!" Reply: "Don't worry. It will be all right. Every cloud has a silver lining."



Difficult times are like dark clouds that pass overhead and block the sun. When we look more closely at the edges of every cloud we can see the sun shining there like a silver lining.

Example: "I found a new job after all, and I like this one even better than the last." Reply: "You see? Every cloud has a silver lining."



Every cloud has a silver lining means that the sun shining at the edges of every cloud reminds us that every difficult situation has a bright side.

Example: "This really is a tough situation. Do you think things will work out for the best?" Reply: "I'm sure they will. Every cloud has a silver lining."
