不屈:不屈服(于强大的对手) – unyielding, unbending

When you don't surrender to a strong enemy/opponent, you are 不屈的. This word is often used to describe heroes/heroines in wars and battles.

Chinese word 不屈 usually menas "never give up, never surrender" to describe someone that is very strong psychologically. The Chinese word is often used with 坚韧不屈or不屈不挠. Let us have an example as "狼有三大特性:一是敏锐的嗅觉;二是不屈不挠、奋不顾身的进攻精神;三是群体奋斗的意识。", "对于不屈不挠的人来说,没有失败这回事。" On the other hand,不屈has two parts of speech, one is used as a verb, for example "对于敌人的威逼利诱,他从不屈服。" The other is an adjective. For example "他虽然双腿残疾,但是他坚韧不屈的精神着实让我们感动”.


It can be dated from the 《左传·襄公二十九年》:“至矣哉!直而不倨,曲而不屈。”I think it commonly to describe a strong mind and you will never change you dream, give up to tough environment or the powerful man.
