    Can somebody please explain this?

    Maybe I am missing something in the translation.

    Ешь пирог с грибами, а язык держи за зубами.
    Eat a pie with mushrooms, and hold your tongue behind your teeth.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    The last paragraph there answers your question. It says it's a proverb from the Stalin era, which roughly means "Hear much, speak little".
