(Casting) Pearls

There is a very old expression ‘do not cast pearls before swine.‘ The expression is commonly known as being from a biblical verse. I recently read information of it’S existence well before then. Here is the link where you can read more: Phrases.org-more info

If you say that someone is casting pearls before swine, you mean that they are wasting their time by offering something that is helpful or valuable to someone who does not appreciate or understand it.


I don’t mean to imply this is the subject of “Pearl”, just ran across the info while searching for a pearl relatable quote.

‘Pearl’-By Valerie Dowdy- Surrealistic style painting of a sensually, long limbed woman, who is contemplating/dreaming from behind closed eyes. She is wearing a strand of pearls that appear to have broken and are floating away. She has a seashell turban, and a watery, gauzy gown, flowing around her.
