Usage examples for thwarting
The environment in which it is placed and the responses which the outer world makes to it- and these surroundings and responses in the long run are largely of our choosing and making- represent either the helping or thwarting of its tendencies, and the sum total of the directions in which its powers can be exercised and its demands satisfied: the possibilities, in fact, which life puts before it. – The Life of the Spirit and the Life of To-day by Evelyn Underhill
