Quiet: You make a sound but not a loud sound.

Example:

I have a car with silent engine. (silent engine = broken car)

 I have a car with quiet engine. (all cars make sound, however this car doesn't make a loud sound -> quiet)

 

Silent: You don't make any sound at all (no noise, no sound)

Example:

 She didn't say anything, she was quiet.

 She didn't say anything, she was silent.
