  Obdurate \Ob"du*rate\, a. [L. obduratus, p. p. of obdurare to
     harden; ob (see Ob-)+ durare to harden, durus hard. See
     Dure.]
     1. Hardened in feelings, esp. against moral or mollifying
        influences; unyielding; hard-hearted; stubbornly wicked.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              The very custom of evil makes the heart obdurate
              against whatsoever instructions to the contrary.
                                                    --Hooker.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Art thou obdurate, flinty, hard as steel,
              Nay, more than flint, for stone at rain relenteth?
                                                    --Shak.
        [1913 Webster]

           [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Hard; firm; unbending; inflexible; unyielding; stubborn;
          obstinate; impenitent; callous; unfeeling; insensible;

     Usage: Obdurate, Callous, Hardened. Callous denotes a
            deadening of the sensibilities; as, a callous
            conscience. Hardened implies a general and settled
            disregard for the claims of interest, duty, and
            sympathy; as, hardened in vice. Obdurate implies an
            active resistance of the heart and will aganst the
            pleadings of compassion and humanity.
            [1913 Webster] -- Ob"du*rate*ly, adv. --
            Ob"du*rate*ness, n.
