6. Read the following passage and answer the questions below.
Behind them, in support, are the proverbs makes, on whose banner is inscribed the words ‘silence is golden’ words they must use, but they have no love for them. Speech is to them a danger, a device for entangling men. They feel that all may be understood so long as nothing is said: that only in silence can reach out to mind and the heart be known. In the exchange of words, their personalities do not expand but contract; they see the lovely procession of thought and feeling turn into a dusty and disorderly crowd of words and phrases. They see the talkers with fear and contempt, stripping themselves in public, like exhibitionists. The talkers can not understand the silent, nor can the silent explain their attitude, except in speech. This illuminates the weakness of their belief, that they must convince us of uselessness of speech by means of speech.
