Eternity / Always and Forever

China yǒng yuǎn
Japan ei-en

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

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

Eternity / Forever

China yǒng
Japan ei

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

Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

China yǒng yuǎn de péng yǒu

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."

Love Forever / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng yuǎn
Japan ai ei en

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

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 Life / Everlasting Life
Immortality

China yǒng shēng
Japan eisei

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

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.


See Also:  Forever Love | Eternal Love (Japanese)

Eternal Love

Japan ei en no ai

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

The first character here means "love"

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

This is the shortest way to express the idea of "love eternally" in Chinese.


See Also:  Love Forever

Eternal Friendship
Friends Forever

Japan ei en no yuu

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."

Japan fu rou

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."

From Here to Eternity

China cóng zhè lǐ dào yǒng héng

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

Forever Family

China yǒng yuǎn de jiā

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."


See Also:  Family

Together Forever

China yǒng yuǎn zài yī qǐ

This is "together forever" in Chinese.

This is a great idea for couples making a commitment of a lifetime.

Together Forever

Japan zutto issho

This is "together forever" in Japanese.

The first three characters mean "continuously," "throughout," "all along," "the whole time," or "all the way."

The last two Kanji mean "together."


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

Together Forever

Japan eien ni issho ni

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.

Forever In My Heart

China yǒng yuǎn zài wǒ xīn zhōng

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

Forever In My Heart

China yǒng yuǎn zài wǒ xīn

This is the shorter, somewhat lyrical version of this phrase.

我 me / myself / my
心 heart / mind / soul

Forever In My Heart

Japan i tsu ma de mo watashi no kokoro no naka ni

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


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

Forever In My Heart

Japan ei en ni watashi no kokoro no naka ni

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

The character breakdown:
永遠 (eien) eternity; perpetuity; immortality; permanence.
に (ni) indicates the location of a person or thing.
私の (watashi no) my; mine.
心の中 (kokoro no naka) the middle of one's mind; the midst of one's heart.
に (ni) indicates the location of a person or thing (makes this "in" the middle of one's heart).


Note: There's more than one way to say "Forever in My Heart" in Japanese, so you'll find another version in our database. This is the very verbose version.


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

Eternal Beauty

China yǒng héng de měi

Learning is Eternal

Japan shougai gakushuu

This means, "Learning is Eternal" or "Lifelong Learning," in Japanese.

Learning is Eternal

China xué wú zhǐ jìng

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.

Forever Young / Long Life

Japan fu rou chou ju

This Japanese phrase means "perpetual youth and longevity." It contains the ideas of never getting old and eternal life.

Together Forever in Love

China yǒng yuǎn ài zài yī qǐ

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.

Eternal Life / Future Life

China lái shì
Japan rai-se

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

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.

Eternal Wheel of Life

China fǎ lún
Japan hourin / horin

This is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja title, "The Eternal Wheel of Life," in Buddhism.

Also known as the wheel of the law, or Buddha-truth which is able to crush all evil and all opposition. It is likened to Indra's wheel which rolls on from man to man, place to place, age to age.

Colloquially used in some sects to mean preaching or spreading Buddha-truth.

Miss You Forever

China yǒng yuǎn xiǎng niàn nǐ

This 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).

Forever Young

China yǒng yuǎn nián qīng

This is "forever young" in Chinese characters.

Eternal Peace

China yǒng píng
Japan eihei

This is a way to write "eternal peace" in Chinese and Japanese.

This may also refer to Yongping county in Dali Bai autonomous prefecture. This is also a Japanese surname that romanizes as Nagahira.

Eternal Happiness

China xìng fú yǒng héng

幸福永恆 is a short way to say eternal happiness in Chinese.

Breaking down the parts:
幸福 means happiness, happy, blessed, blessedness, joy, and/or well-being.
永恆 means eternal, everlasting, and/or forever.

Another way to write this is 永恆的幸福. It reverses the word order and adds a possessive article. I prefer the shorter version, which is also a bit more natural in 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.
