Eternal / Eternity

China yǒng héng

The first character means always, forever and perpetual. The second character holds the meaning of permanent. Together, they create a word that means eternal, eternally or infinite time.

永 is the simplest form of eternity or "always and forever." 永 can sometimes mean forever, always, perpetual, infinite, or "without end," depending on context.

Note: Not often seen as a single Kanji in Japanese. Best if your audience is Chinese.

Eternity / Always and Forever

China yǒng yuǎn
Japan ei-en
Eternity / Always and Forever

永遠 is the Chinese, Korean and Japanese word for "forever."

If we take this word apart, the first character means "always," "forever" or "perpetual." While the second character means "far" or "distant."


See Also:  Immortality

From Here to Eternity

China cóng zhè lǐ dào yǒng héng
From Here to Eternity

This is the translation of the phrase, "From here to eternity" into Mandarin Chinese.

Eternal Beauty

China yǒng héng de měi

Eternal Friendship
Friends Forever

Japan ei en no yuu
Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

The first two characters mean eternal, eternity, perpetuity, forever, immortality, and permanence.

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "Love, of the eternal kind."

The last character is "friend" or "Friendship."


See Also:  Best Friends

Eternal Love

China yǒng héng de ài
Eternal Love

The first two characters mean eternal, eternally, everlasting, and/or perpetual.

Eternal Love

Japan ei en no ai
Eternal Love

The first two characters mean eternal, eternity, perpetuity, forever, immortality, and permanence.

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "Love, of the eternal kind."

The last character is "love."

Cultural note: Most of the time, it is taboo to use the word "love" in Japanese. For instance, a Japanese man will say, "I like you," rather than, "I love you," to his spouse/girlfriend. However, this entry for eternal love is acceptable because of the way it is composed.

This entry is only appropriate if your audience is Japanese. We also have a Chinese version of this phrase.

Learning is Eternal

China xué wú zhǐ jìng
Learning is Eternal

This Chinese philosophy tells of how we continue to learn throughout our lives. This proverb can be translated in a few ways such as "Study has no end," "Knowledge is infinite," "No end to learning," "There's always something new to study," or "You live and learn."

The deeper meaning: Even when we finish school we are still students of the world gaining more knowledge from our surroundings with each passing day.

These are the last two words from John 3:16 in the Chinese Union Bible.

In Japanese, this can either mean eternal life or immortality.

Eternal Life / Future Life

China lái shì
Japan rai-se
Eternal Life / Future Life

來世 can be used in many different ways. It is often used to express the next life (life in heaven or wherever your soul is bound for). So it does have a religious overtone. However, it can also be used to express your life in the future - perhaps during your present lifetime. It can also be translated as "the next world," "the next generation," "the time that is to come," "otherworld," or simply "posterity."


See Also:  Rebirth | Reincarnation | Immortality

Forever Young / Eternal Youth

Japan fu rou
Forever Young / Eternal Youth

This Japanese phrase means "perpetual youth" or "forever young." It contains the idea of never getting old. It literally means "never aging," or "not [getting] old."

Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

China yǒng yuǎn de péng yǒu
Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

永遠的朋友 is exactly what the title suggests. 永遠的朋友 means friends that are eternal or a friendship that will last forever - you will remain the best of friends as long as you live.

The first two characters mean forever, eternal, eternity, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence.

The middle character links the words (it's a possessive article).

The last two characters represent friendship, or simply "friends."

Eternal Love / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng héng
Eternal Love / Love Eternally

The first character here means "love"

Love Forever / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng yuǎn
Japan ai ei en
Love Forever / Love Eternally

The first character here means "love."

The last two mean forever, eternity, eternal, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence.

愛永遠 is the shortest and most universal way to express this idea in Chinese and Japanese.

Japanese note: This sound more like a title than a phrase in Japanese (if that makes any sense). 愛永遠 is a great title for a romantic book, title of a movie, name of a perfume, or even a name for a store.

Always Try to do Better

Japan sara ni ue o me za su
Always Try to do Better

This Japanese proverb literally translates as: [After having achieved a fair degree of success,] one should still try to do better.

You are always a beauty in your lover’s eyes

China qíng rén yǎn lǐ chū xī shī
You are always a beauty in your lover’s eyes

Any woman with affection for Asian art and you will love a gift of this Chinese proverb calligraphy on a wall scroll. She will melt in your arms as you tell her the meaning of these characters.

Contained in this phrase is a reference to the most beautiful woman in Chinese history. Her name was Xi Shi, and she was known to have good looks that need not fine robes or make up. Her charms were so powerful that she brought down an entire kingdom (in a successful effort to bring honor and pride back to her people).

This is a great way to express that the woman in your life is your one love.

Love Binds Us Together

Japan ai ha subete o kanzen ni musubu obi de aru
Love Binds Us Together

This Japanese phrase suggests that we (or a couple) are bound together by love.

I searched the web and found all of these English translation variations for this phrase:

Have love; The only way in which you may be completely joined together.

Love is the sash that perfectly binds us together.

Love is what binds us together

Love, which binds all things together in perfect unity.

This same Japanese phrase is used as part of Colossians 3:14 in at least one version of the Japanese Bible.

A few Biblical versions include:

...Charity, which is the bond of perfectness. (KJV)

...Love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (NIV)

Eight Immortals

China bā xiān
Japan hassen
Eight Immortals

八仙 is the Chinese title for the Eight Immortals of Daoist / Taoist mythology. In Japanese, this can be the given name Hassen.

Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight

Always rising after a fall or repeated failures
Japan shichi ten hakki / nana korobi ya oki
Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight

This Japanese proverb relays the vicissitudes of life, with the meaning "seven times down eight times up."

Some would more naturally translate it into English as "Always rising after a fall or repeated failures" or compare it to the English, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."

The first Kanji is literally "7." The second means "fall down" (sometimes this Kanji means "turn around," "revolve" or "turn over" but in this case, it holds the meaning of "fall"). The third is "8." And the last is "get up," "rouse," or "rise."

Basically, if you fail 7 times, you should recover from those events and be prepared to rise an 8th time. This also applies if it is the world or circumstances that knock you down seven times...
...just remember that you have the ability to bounce back from any kind of adversity.

Note: This can be pronounced two ways. One is "shichi ten hakki" or "shichitenhakki." The other is "nana korobi ya oki" also written, "nanakorobi-yaoki."

Special Note: The second character is a Kanji that is not used in China. Therefore, please only select our Japanese master calligrapher for this selection.

Always Be Prepared

China bǎo dài gān liáng nuǎn dài yī
Always Be Prepared

This proverb literally translates as:
Carry [extra] food when [you are] full and [extra] clothes when [you are] warm.

Always be prepared for a rainy day.

Forever In My Heart

This means, "forever in my heart" or "always in my heart" in Chinese.

Always in My Heart

China yǒng zhù wǒ xīn

永駐我心 is one of a few ways to write, "always in my heart," or "forever in my heart," in Chinese.

The first character means eternal, forever, or always.

The second character means resides, in, or stationed (in the case of troops).

The third character means me, my, or mine.

Forever In My Heart

China yǒng yuǎn zài wǒ xīn

Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Forever Love

China yǒng yuǎn de ài
Forever Love

Forever Family

China yǒng yuǎn de jiā
Forever Family

永遠的家 is a special phrase that we composed for a "family by adoption" or "adoptive family."

It's the dream of every orphan and foster child to be formally adopted and find their "forever family."

The first two characters mean forever, eternal, eternity, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence. The third character connects this idea with the last character which means "family" and/or "home."

God is Always With You

God is With Me Always
China shàng dì yǔ nǐ cháng zài
God is Always With You

The direct translation of these Chinese characters is "God Together [with] You Always Exist."

Keep in mind that Chinese grammar is sometimes very different from English. This makes perfect sense in Chinese.

Note: The title for God is the first two characters - the other words in the direct translation represent one character each.

God Bless You
God Be With You

Japan kami sa ma ga mamo ru you ni
God Bless You / God Be With You

This is about as close as you can get to, "God Bless You" in Japanese.

This literally means, "[May] God Protect [You]." It can also mean, "God is Always With You," as the word in this phrase that means "protect" can also mean to follow or be with. In fact, the Japanese dictionary entry for that word reads like this: to protect; to guard; to defend; to keep (i.e. a promise); to abide; to observe; to follow.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

God Is With You Always

China shàn dì zǒng shì yǔ nǐ tóng zài
God Is With You Always

I was going to write this phrase as "God is with me always" but as a wall scroll, hanging in your room, it is talking to you (you're not talking), so it works better with you.

This is a nice phrase that any Chinese Christian would be happy to have on his/her wall.

If I annotate this, it sounds a little strange in English but it's perfectly natural in Chinese:
上帝 God | 总是 always | 与 and | 你 you | 同 together | 在 existing

God is Always With Me

Japan kamisama wa itsumo watashi to issho ni iru
God is Always With Me

This Japanese phrase means, "God is always with me."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Happy Family

China hé xié zhī jiā
Happy Family

和諧之家 means, "harmonious family" or "happy family" in Chinese.

The first two characters relay the idea of happiness and harmony.
The third character is a connecting or possessive article (connects harmony/happiness to family).
The last character means family but can also mean home or household.

Happy Family

Japan nago ya ka na ka tei
Happy Family

This means "happy family" or "harmonious family" in Japanese.

The first three Kanji create a word that means mild, calm, gentle, quiet, or harmonious. After that is a connecting article. The last two Kanji mean family, home, or household.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Immortal

China xiān
Japan sento / sen
Immortal

仙 means immortal (as in a being or person).

In some context, it can mean hermit, ascetic, man of the hills, or wizard. The Buddha is often put in this category.

In Chinese mythology and folklore, there is a famous group of eight immortals (八仙).

The 楞嚴經 (Śūraṅgama Sūtra) speaks of many kinds of immortals including walkers on the earth, fliers, wanderers at will (into space or into the deva heavens), beings with the ability to transform themselves into any form, etc.

Immortal / Immortality

China bù xiǔ
Japan fukyuu
Immortal / Immortality

不朽 means immortal or immortality in Chinese, Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja.

The literal translation is "without decay" or "never rotting." Basically, this title speaks of something or someone who never dies and thus never rots or decays.

This can also be translated as everlasting, eternal or imperishable.

The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering

China huò dé yǒng shēng de yào shí shì xiān yào huó dé jīng cǎi
The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering

This is a famous quote from Bruce Lee. However, when quoted, he was speaking in English. So this is a translation of his English quote into Chinese. Since Bruce spoke both Chinese and English, his quotes sometimes go both ways.

Infinite Love

China wú xiàn ài
Japan mu gen ai
Infinite Love

無限愛 is the Chinese and Japanese title meaning infinite love, unlimited love, or unbounded love.

The first character means never, not, or like a prefix "un-."

The second means limited, restricted, or bound.

The third means love or affection.

Infinity / Infinite / Endless / Boundless

(Chinese / Korean)
China wú qióng
Japan mu kyuu
Infinity / Infinite / Endless / Boundless

無窮 is the Chinese and Korean word meaning infinity, eternity, infinitude, infinite or endless.

無窮 literally translates as "without [ever becoming] exhausted/poor," and in that context, can mean "inexhaustible" or "boundless" but this is usually read as "without end." Some extended definitions include eternity, infinitude, or immortality.

In certain context, it can mean "immortality."

The first character means "never" or "not." The second means "exhausted," "finished," or "ending."

Note: 無窮 is a Japanese word but rarely used in modern Japan.

To Infinity and Beyond

China chāo yuè wú xiàn
To Infinity and Beyond

超越無限 means, "to infinity and beyond," in Chinese.

超越無限 is how the slogan/phrase from Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear was translated from the movie into Chinese.

To Infinity and Beyond

Japan mugen no kanata e
To Infinity and Beyond

This means, "to infinity and beyond," in Japanese.

This is how the slogan/phrase from Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear was translated from the movie into Japanese.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Infinity / Infinite / Unlimited / Unbounded

Japanese = Infinity / Chinese = No limits
China wú xiàn
Japan mu gen
Infinity / Infinite / Unlimited / Unbounded

無限 is the Chinese and Japanese word meaning infinity, unlimited or unbounded.

無限 literally translates as "without limits" or "without [being] bound."

The first character means "never" or "not" or like a prefix "un-."

The second means "limited," "restricted," or "bound."

Please note that the Japanese definition leans more toward "infinity" and the Chinese is more about being "boundless" or "without limits."

In Korean, this means infinity, infinitude, or boundlessness. But in Korean, this term has many interpretations or contexts, so your intended meaning might come out a little vague or ambiguous.

Do not be afraid, God is always with you

Joshua 1:9
Japan anata ga doko e iku ni mo anata no kami omo ga tomoni ora reru yue osorete wa naranai ononoite wa naranai
Do not be afraid, God is always with you

This is a Japanese translation of a large portion of Joshua 1:9.

The Japanese passage includes, "The Lord God is with you wherever you are; Therefore do not fear or be discouraged."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Safety and Well-Being of the Family

Kanai Anzen
Japan ka nai an zen
Safety and Well-Being of the Family

家內安全 is kind of the Japanese way of saying, "Family First." It's really a Japanese proverb about the safety and well-being of your family, and/or, peace and prosperity in the household.

Some Japanese will hang an amulet in their home with these Kanji on it. The purpose being to keep your family safe from harm.

According to Shinto followers, hanging this in your home is seen as an invocation to God to always keep members of the family free from harm.

We were actually looking for a way to say "family first" in Japanese when this proverb came up in the conversation and research. While it doesn't literally say "family first," it shows that the safety and well-being of your family is your first or most important priority. So, this proverb is the most natural way to express the idea that you put your family first.

Longevity / Long Life Wishes

A wish for a long and prosperous life
China fú rú dōng hǎi shòu bǐ nán shān
Longevity / Long Life Wishes

This is a phrase that means "May you have good fortune as great as the eastern oceans, and may your life last as long as the southern mountains."

In ancient Chinese mythology, the eastern oceans and southern mountains are where God resides (basically it is the same as saying "heaven"). So it's like saying, "May your good fortune and life be as vast as the heavens."

There is also a longer, 14-character version of this phrase. Also, this can be cut into two scrolls (with half the phrase on each side - great for hanging on either side of a doorway). Just let me know if you'd like a special version (there is an additional cost).

Longevity / Long Life Wishes

Japan nan zan no jyu
Longevity / Long Life Wishes

南山之壽 is a wish for long life for someone. The first part of this Japanese phrase is, "Nan Zan," which literally means "south mountain." This mountain is one of good wishes, good fortune, and prosperity. The title is often used as a salutation of good wishes.

The third Kanji is just a connector, and the last Kanji means long life or longevity.

I guess you could translate this phrase as "May your life be as long as Nan Zan is tall."

Longevity / Long Life

China cháng shòu
Japan chouju
Longevity / Long Life

Used as a noun, this word means "longevity" or "the ability to live long." It can also be an adjective meaning "long lived."


Japanese LongevityPlease note that Japanese use a simplified version of the second character of longevity - it also happens to be the same simplification used in mainland China. Click on the character to the right if you want the Japanese/Simplified version of this two-character longevity calligraphy.

Longevity / Long Life

China shòu
Japan ju / kotobuki

壽 can be defined as "long life" or "longevity" in the simplest form.

Miss You Forever

China yǒng yuǎn xiǎng niàn nǐ
Miss You Forever

永遠想念你 is how to write "missing you forever" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean "forever" or "eternally."
The third and forth characters mean "missing" or "longing for."
The last character means "you."

This might suggest that you are missing someone whom you will never see again (depending on how you read it, or in what context it is used).

The Red String

Thread of Lover's Destiny / Fate
Japan akai ito
The Red String

This literally translates as, "the red string" in Japanese but the real meaning is much deeper...

In Japanese culture, it's believed that fate, destiny, or karma joins lovers by an unseen string, tied around one little finger of each. 赤い糸 is how soul mates fine and are drawn to each other.

Never Forget

China yǒng zhì bù wàng
Never Forget

This literally translates as, "forever remember, never forget." But most will just understand this as "never forget" or "never forgotten" in Chinese.

Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

U.S. Marines Slogan
China yǒng yuǎn zhōng chéng
Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

永遠忠誠 is the clearest and most natural way to translate "Semper Fidelis" or "Always Faithful" into Mandarin Chinese. 永遠忠誠 is specifically meant for U.S. Marines who often use the shortened term "Semper Fi."

The first two characters are a word that means always, forever, and/or eternally.
The last two characters are a word that means fidelity, loyal, and/or devoted.

I spent 10 years in the Marines, so it was a no-brainer to add this to our calligraphy database.

Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

Japan tsune ni chuu sei wo
Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

常に忠誠を is "Semper Fidelis" or "Always Faithful" in Japanese. 常に忠誠を is specifically meant for U.S. Marines who often use the shortened term "Semper Fi."

The first two Kanji mean "always" or "constantly." The last three Kanji mean "faithful," "loyal," "devoted," and/or "diligent." It's most often read as "faithful."

Always Striving for Inner Strength

China zì qiáng bú xī
Always Striving for Inner Strength

This proverb or idiom suggests that the pursuit self-improvement is eternal. It can also be a suggestion to strive unremittingly in life.

The first two characters mean inner-strength with the idea of self-improvement. The last two characters mean "never rest" or "striving without giving up."

Some will translate these four characters as, "Exert and strive hard without any let up."

Together Forever

China yǒng yuǎn zài yī qǐ
Together Forever

永遠在一起 is "together forever" in Chinese.

永遠在一起 is a great idea for couples making a commitment of a lifetime.

Together Forever

Japan eien ni issho ni
Together Forever

This Japanese phrase means, "together forever," or in the actual character order it's actually, "forever together" (more natural word order in Japanese).

The first two characters mean forever, eternally, or always. After a particle of speech, the last three characters mean together, or "with at the same time."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Together Forever in Love

China yǒng yuǎn ài zài yī qǐ
Together Forever in Love

This is "together forever in love" in Chinese.

It's a nice phrase if you're a couple who plans to stay together and make your love last as long as you live.

China yǔ zhòu píng héng
Japan u chuu hei kou

Fear God

敬畏上帝 is probably the best way to translate the Christian English phrase, "Fear God," into Chinese.

The first two characters mean to revere, be in awe of, or a general term of reverence. It can mean fear, but only in the context of respect or fear of authority.

In some entries above you will see that characters have different versions above and below a line.
In these cases, the characters above the line are Traditional Chinese, while the ones below are Simplified Chinese.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.


A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
