This verse is saying that gossip is like wood fueling a fire.
By withholding wood from a fire you cause it to go out and in same way you could cause a quarrel to cease by withholding gossip.
Therefore, resist the urge to gossip or repeat things,
even if they are true, and you will bring peace instead of strife.
