Can you please tell me an English proverb which means "to give something to somebody who does not recognize the value of that thing"?

Depending on the language level you're looking for. From the bible,
"To give things of value to those who will not understand or appreciate it."
If you need something as valid but more common
Consider, caviar(e) to the general
I don't know about english, maybe you have something equivalent, but in french we have a proverb which is "To give jam to pigs".
