A saying popular among adults, which means if you do not open your mouth you will not get what it is you want.
Jane was too quiet at the birthday party, and when everyone got their food, she was last to get hers.

Mother came to Jane and said 'Why aren't you eating?'

Jane responded 'I do want to eat...'

Mother concluded, "A closed mouth doesn't get fed. Next time open your mouth."
