A few weeks ago, in her review of Stephen King’s book 11/22/63, Amy Makechnie mentioned a great word nerd word: obdurate. Specifically, she quoted King:
“The past is obdurate. It doesn’t like to change.”
Thank you Mr. King, and Amy. Now, let’s learn some more…
Obdurate \’äb-d(y)ə-rət\ adj, from Latin obdurare, to harden; hardened in feelings, unyielding, resistant to persuasion.
I know some obdurate people, do you? Frustrating, aren’t they?
