<font face=”comic sans ms” size=3 color=slate blue>Does this mean every silver lining has a cloud?
If every bad thing has a good thing attached,
what does bad actually mean? </font></font></font>

Let me quote one American philosopher who said, "Cool is a rule, but sometimes bad is bad."

Then there's a famous American child molester who said, "I'm bad...you're bad...he's bad...she's bad. Hooo!"

Perhaps whoever said, "It's always darkest just before the storm" had his/her eyes blocked by the silver lining.

My daddy always used to say 'every cloud has silver mining.' That made almost as much sense.

I think bad is the unexpected thing we don't want to happen or be wrapped up in. The affect us and in some way change us even if they are but one small thing...

Without the bad, would we care about the good?
Maybe there are only actions and reactions creating an endless chain of causalities.

maybe it means that there is more bad than good, or that at least there is more mundane crap than exciting crap, but we have to celebrate the bright spots, which we do, beacse they seem so much brighter? i dunno know. . . .

In some ways bad can be good. In essence it not only reminds us of our own humanity, fallability, weakness but it also makes us stronger. Passion is all that much more exciting and enjoyable due to the bad...

If you like Chet Baker, he has a cool rendition of "Look For The Silver Lining." Although, judging from how he wound up, maybe he didn't find it.

I've always thought that phrase was thought up by someone with detached retinas. Or a classic migraine sufferer. I'm looking out the window now and it's cloudy as anything. Not one cloud has a silver lining out there.
