Famous quotes containing the word stoop:

    To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.
    Katharine Hepburn (b. 1909)

    We imagine much more appropriately an artisan on his toilet seat or on his wife than a great president, venerable by his demeanor and his ability. It seems to us that they do not stoop from their lofty thrones even to live.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    Mortals that would follow me,
    Love vertue, she alone is free,
    She can teach ye how to clime
    Higher than the Spheary chime;
    Or if Vertue feeble were,
    Heav’n it self would stoop to her.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
