One is silent who does not speak; one is dumb who can not, for want of the proper organs; as, a dumb beast, etc.; and hence, figuratively, we speak of a person as struck dumb with astonishment, etc. One is mute who is held back from speaking by some special cause; as, he was mute through fear; mute astonishment, etc. Such is the case with most of those who never speak from childhood; they are not ordinarily dumb, but mute because they are deaf, and therefore never learn to talk; and hence their more appropriate name is deaf-mutes. [1913 Webster] They spake not a word; But, like dumb statues, or breathing stones, Gazed each on other. --Shak. [1913 Webster] All sat mute, Pondering the danger with deep thoughts. --Milton.
