I don't think the silence is gold.In ancient dynasty ,the cultured man also likes this way to show their
profound knowledge ,so generally speaking when they talking to others,they attitude is much modest and
prudent .iI think sometime we can inherit this tradition,after all it's a old tradition that Chinese generation to generation pass down .When we meet the respected people ,we should respect them ,and let them speak a lot,
then we can make a supplment afterthem.
The other side when we meet the special instance ,we shoule speak aloud and express ourselveds view
clearly to show that you have the ability and capability .The urgent time is when someone despise you,you
shoule stand out bravely and resolve ly.
