"Was I deceiv’d, or did a sable cloud / Turn forth her silver lining on the night?"

~John Milton (The guy who wrote Paradise Lost)

This is supposedly where the phrase "silver lining" originated from, Ian tells me. And my name's in it! Cool. I am a cloud.
Ian also told me that John Milton went blind before writing Paradise Lost, dictating the lot of it. Maybe he was blind, but it sure made for a classic read, perhaps better than if he had been seeing his own written words and not hearing himself speak them. Silver lining indeed!

Speaking of silver linings, cloud or shoe!?
