    Stoop down

    Would you please correct my mistakes in these two sentences? I am not sure if they sound natural.

    1. There were no limits to which Peter would not stoop down to get what he wanted.

    I am wondering if it would be possible use "demean himself" in the sentence above like this:

    2.There were no limits to which Peter would not demean himself to get what he wanted.

    Re: Stoop down

    Delete 'down' and both sentences are fine.

    Re: Stoop down

    I may be crazy, but I think the word "not" in both sentences should be deleted.

    Re: Stoop down

    There just seems to be too many negatives in the sentences.
