     Usage: Obstruction, Obstacle. The difference between
            these words is that indicated by their etymology; an
            obstacle is something standing in the way; an
            obstruction is something put in the way. Obstacle
            implies more fixedness and is the stronger word. We
            remove obstructions; we surmount obstacles.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  Disparity in age seems a greater obstacle to an
                  intimate friendship than inequality of fortune.
                                                    --Collier.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  The king expected to meet with all the
                  obstructions and difficulties his enraged

            [1913 Webster]
