A hungry man is an angry man.
A person who does not get what he wants or needs is a frustrated person and will be easily provoked to rage.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

If you say that every cloud has a silver lining, you mean that every sad or unpleasant situation has a positive side to it. If you talk about silver lining you are talking about something positive that comes out of a sad or unpleasant situation.
