Deflect, deviate, and diverge are said of any turning away; deviate commonly of a slight and gradual movement, diverge of a more sharp and decided one. To bias is to cut across the texture, or incline to one side; in figurative use always with an unfavorable import. Mold is a stronger work than bend; we may bend by a superior force that which still resists the constraint; as, a bent bow; we mold something plastic entirely to some desired form.

How to use stoop in a sentence?

  1. Marian Tupy:

    Some of the anti-capitalist impulse goes back to that hunter-gatherer mentality and not comprehending the complexity of the market economy, the complexity outpaced our ability to understand it. But even those who don’t understand markets should open their eyes and acknowledge its benefits : Worldwide, wherever economic freedom is allowed, millions of people have lifted themselves out of stoop labor and miserable poverty. Of course, not everyone can reap the benefits of markets. The sick, the mentally ill and other truly helpless people need a hand. But why assume government must provide that help ? Government does n’t do anything very well. Why not let private charity handle it ? I once assumed there was too much poverty for private charity to make much of a difference. But now I realize there is plenty of money, and private charity would do much more if government did n’t discourage it. When the welfare state took over poverty relief, it crowded out.

  2. Katharine Hepburn:

    To keep your character intact you cannot stoop to filthy acts. It makes it easier to stoop the next time.

  3. Albert Watkins:

    My clients didnt sit on their front stoop with guns. ... No firearms were on them at the time that they, were, as property owners standing in front of their home, it was not until they basically were in a position of seeing and observingviolence, recklessness, lawbreaking, and knowing that the police were not going to be doing anything.

  4. Carlos A. Urbizo:

    Stoop and you'll be stepped on stand tall and you'll be shot at.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    One of the commonalities between many movies that come from Asian subcontinent is their strange and distasteful sense of humor to make fun of disabled, fat, ugly and less fortunate people , in general. It's a shocking observation that is truly disturbing, when you thin about it. Making fun of fat people won't make anybody any thinner, likewise making fun of ugly people won't make them any prettier either. Also, making fun of unsuccessful people won't necessarily make the mocker more successful. So why movie-makers and actors stoop to such low level of humor? It's best to leave those fellow human beings in the hands of the Sureme Power who created them. And the hard-hearted movie-makers and actors should, instead of making fun of people, work on improving themselves. We all are God's Children, and we must treat each other with respect and dignity.
