Here is a chapter of a book - "Drained" by Johann Christoph Arnold. He has put it on the net as a free ebook.
This chapter describes in quite a detail why silence is golden and a touching story of Sophie who underwent hell through Hitler's Germany and Nazism and several other trials and tribulations later in her life. It is really really a toucjing story.
Here is an excerpt from the chapter:
silence, ‘Stands outside the world of profit and utility. It cannot be exploited; you cannot get anything out of it. It is “unproductive”; therefore it is regarded as useless. Yet there is more help and healing in silence than in all the useful things.’"
