It means that you should avoid talking whenever you can get away with it. The idea is that by doing that you will avoid saying anything that will get you in trouble. Good night!
It's a different version of another quote:
"Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."
Don't they teach you kids to think these days?
