    It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good

    It's an ill wind that blows nobody (any) good.
    Prov. Even misfortune can benefit someone or something.; A calamity for one person usually benefits somebody else

    The use of 'ill wind' is most commonly in the phrase 'it's an ill wind that blows nobody any good'. This is first recorded in John Heywood's A dialogue conteinyng the nomber in effect of all the prouerbes in the Englishe tongue, 1546:
    "An yll wynde that blowth no man to good, men say."

    What is the origin of the example in #0?

    Because, while the translation is correct, neither aphorism is properly attributed to Samuel Johnson. The "silver lining" aphorism can be traced back to John Milton nearly a century before Johnson began writing, & the Heywood proverb (dating 2 centuries before Johnson) indicates that it was so well known to be a proverb in Heywood's day that it originated long before him.
