I once heard someone quote the Vilna Gaon saying, “For every second that one remains silent he will merit reward of a magnitude that is beyond the comprehension of even of malochim (celestial beings).

Does anyone know the source for this?

It is mentioned in the Igeres Hagra

וכל רגע ורגע שהאדם חוסם פיו זוכה בשבילו לאור הגנוז שאין מלאך ובריה יכולים לשער
