Hello,dear friend, Silence sometimes is really so good it can keep us from so many useless things,it is a special character which makes others admire,in silence, others will not know what you really think about of course others will unlikely to judge what kind of person you are.what you leave to other is that you are mysterious,and respected. However we shouldn't silent all the time ,we should express ourselves in proper times .and make others know us.;-) Molly

well i have to agree silence is very golden,sometimes i would love to have a little silence in my life.silence is a very strong word,but to me i would listen over silence though.if someone gets mad and me i always just walk away because i dont like to hear all the commotion,so silence is good for that because i never want to say someting i dont mean to hurt someones feelings.and yes it can save us from unfunted fuss so much which is a great thing.hope all is well my friend,i sent you a few messages,havent heard from you.really hope you are ok.hugs from jersey.pattie

i wasnt silent over the messages. lol. you are my pal and will be. and if we ever meet we will share a lot of decent silent moments in the parks or by the lake, walking and smiling looking at other happy people like us and nodding to each other like "yes miss pattie" and "yes mr apple" lol. just want to see you smile all the time. silence is blissful when we need to realax and be calm. lots of love, apple.

In the literal sense yes silence is golden. It helps us relax and concentrate. But from personal experience I can tell you the gift of hearing, no matter what it is, is a very precious gift none of us should ever take for granted. I have lost my hearing. It takes extreme concentration for me to understand what anyone says and for the most part I have to read lips. We all, me included, have no idea how much we learn and appreciate life until we no longer can hear. To not hear takes you out of everything. So for me silence is not golden but a curse. For I no longer can hear the birds, water running in the brook, music, and the most important thing the sound of my wives voice without her having to shout at me. Learn to appreciate what you want to hear and take care of your hearing so that this will not happen to you.

Thank you apple for the best response. There was a time, not that long ago, when I would have agreed with you completely. There is so much noise in this world it almost drowns out the good things. For there are so many great things to hear.

Silence is a bliss at times. But silence at certain time is more than a long speech. Then it is meaningful than words.

you are correct. it is these times, when silence is a long speach, that i like them . also when silence is blissful it is beautiful. thankyou, apple.

This is true when we are in disagreements or fights (usually verbal). The best way is just stop talking! We may advocate for communication, but when we are in the throes of an argument, stop. Really, nothing will be accomplished. Hurtful words are hurled at one another and they can never be taken back. Better yet, silence is golden.

there have been so many times when i have responded to so many verbal throws that now i have understood that it is better to just keep quiet. that way one doesnt get new ideas to go on and on. and silence is something that opens one's doors to learning you seem sensible, apple.

silence is golden. true, silence even just for a moment will keep us grounded, it will give stillness to a wearied soul, a time to think and rethink, an opportune time to get a new perspective on one's life. but we need to go back to the world, we belong to it the the present moment, we need to share what we have learned. our our souls reach out, we cannot imprison the longings of the soul. besides, continued silence may hurt people without us realizing it. take care buddy, perry

Yes, silence saves us from unnecessary fuss. But, one should not keep silent all the time. There are times when one should speak irrespective whether it will create fuss or not.

that's true.you gain so much by just listening.although i am a teacher,but i like more to listen.it has many advantages like1)you learn a lot 2)saves energy 3)listening to child's chuckle,cuckoo bird,rain showers falling on ground is all time pleasurable 4)and yes avoids unwanted fuss 5)helps to control anger also.

Well Apple, at time sI enjoy the silnece, but at other times I hate it. I am alone for most of the day, as my partner works and am here with my cats only, I can imagine though that in a family where there is a lot of noice, conversation the need for silence might be much more ;)

i know what you mean, i do i think. i have a wonderful family too but i am in my room all alone all the time.lol. believe me. i heep on dreaming and praying and hoping and wishing and listening to music and downloading music and chatting with friends, and writing some blogs, and drinking water, and sleeping and reading. lol. i dont have a pet but wish i had many. excuse my stupid style of writing but i wrote what ever came to my mind. smiles and love, apple.

I agree to some extent. It saves us from some unwanted fuss, but at the same time, in the wrong situation, it could bring us the uncomfortable feeling. Whereas, in the right situation, it could bring us some really comfortable feelings from inside. It really depends, but I think silence is a strong weapon.

Silence can be positive and negative. When people are silence, they can stay away from the problem. On the other site silence, people try to do harmed to us.

One of the best skills to have in business and in life is the skill of LISTENING. There is a saying that we have two ears and one mouth for a reason... use yor EARS more. WE learn so much by listening, and can get into so much trouble with talking. SO shush... and you can't put your foot in your mouth if it's closed!

Silence is the power to control you, which means a victory over your self-control is a virtue. And I say that victory is not easy to boil in your words, to desire more than anything to speak your mind, even if the truth you want to utter it will hurt. And yet shut up! To shut up when your thoughts are confused and ask me cast, the rush and crowd give words to the top lip, yet ... to shut up. To shut up when you want to give a stinging reply to respond to insults with one another, to shut up when a malicious liar, hypocrite attacking unfairly. This is the true art of silent, is when you get a victory over you. For that, avoiding to give your thoughts on the face, you really need to show strength of character that few have. It is this feature that has been made to be treasured forever silent and be considered "golden". Knowing when to shut up does not imply that you have nothing to say or do not have the courage to give reply. Knowing how to shut up is not to say that you can think of, is to stop a flood of words which, said the spur blight, could be harmful and would not honor you.

agreed, silence is goldent but it can be a big disaster for certain situation too. I think we need to judge and use self instinct on it..lol. magic.
