Eternity / Forever

China yǒng
Japan ei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the simplest form of eternity or "always and forever." This character 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.


See Also:  Forever | Ever Lasting

Eternity / Always and Forever

China yǒng yuǎn
Japan ei-en
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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

Eternal / Eternity

China yǒng héng
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the Chinese word for eternity.
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.


See Also:  Immortality

From Here to Eternity

China cóng zhè lǐ dào yǒng héng
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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

Love Forever / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng yuǎn
Japan ai ei en
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

The first character here means "love."

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

This 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). This is a great title for a romantic book, title of a movie, name of a perfume, or even a name for a store.

Forever Love

China yǒng yuǎn de ài
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "The forever kind of love."

The last character is "love."


See Also:  Eternal Love Always

Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

China yǒng yuǎn de péng yǒu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is exactly what the title suggests. This 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 Life / Everlasting Life
Immortality

China yǒng shēng
Japan eisei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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

Although not specifically Christian, this is the way to express ever-lasting life or eternal life in Chinese.

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


See Also:  Rebirth | Reincarnation | Immortality

Eternal Love

China yǒng héng de ài
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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

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

The last character is "love."

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

Eternal Love

Japan ei en no ai
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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.

Eternal Love / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng héng
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

The first character here means "love"

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

Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This 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."

Japan ei en no yuu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

Eternal Life / Future Life

China lái shì
Japan rai-se
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This word 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

Eternal Energy / Eternal Matter

China bù lái bù qù
Japan furai fuko
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a Buddhist term, originally anāgamana-nirgama from Sanskrit.

This implies that things are neither coming into nor going out of existence.

This can also mean, "all things are eternal," or others will call this the Buddhist concept of the eternal conservation of energy.

This theory predates Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton.

Note: This is not a well-known word for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists, so not all will recognize it.

Open the Minds of the Next Generation To Stimulate Thinking

The Sea of Knowledge Has No Limits

China xué hǎi wú yá
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This Chinese proverb reads, "sea of learning, no horizon."

Colloquially, it means there are no limits to what one still has left to learn.

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.
