The Pythagoras' quote says that if it is not necessary, we should be silent, but if we have to say something, it must be worth more than silence.

We must not be talkative because talking a lot might make a situation worse, or we might say something unwanted.

We must appreciate silence and live in it much of the time. Besides the fact that silence allows us to calm down, there is no point in talking when we don't need to.

So we must be quiet, speaking only when necessary and efficiently.
