silence is double -eadged weapon . it has advantages and disadavantages. we can use silence when we donot want to say bad words to someone when he gets us angery or do not have good answer. we mustnot use it to get bad harms to someone like who saw a crim and didnot speak about it . this is so bad.

If silence is golden, then those who are dumb are the richest people on earth...:-)

No, it's not "gold", but it is "golden".
