Those two are a fastidious couple. She's fast and he's hideous.
Henny Youngman fastidious quote

The weakling and the coward are out of place in a strong and free community. In a republic like ours the governing class is composed of the strong men who take the trouble to do the work of government; and if you are too timid or too fastidious or too careless to do your part in this work, then you forfeit your right to be considered one of the governing and you become one of the governed insteadone of the driven cattle of the political arena.
— Theodore Roosevelt

There is one thing that matters -- to set a chime of words tinkling in the minds of a few fastidious people.
— Logan Pearsall Smith

A pretty wife is something for the fastidious vanity of a rou? to retire upon.
— fastidious quotation by Thomas Moore
