Eternity / Forever

China yǒng
Japan ei
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

Chinese
China yǒng yuǎn de péng yǒu
knob
ribbon top

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".

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 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.

Eternity / Always and Forever

China yǒng yuǎn
Japan ei-en

Together Forever in Love

China yǒng yuǎn ài zài yī qǐ
knob
ribbon top

This is "together forever in love" in Chinese.

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.

knob

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".

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 / Eternity

knob
ribbon top

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.

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.

Immortal / Immortality

China bù xiǔ
Japan fukyuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This 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.

Infinity / Infinite / Endless / Boundless

(Chinese / Korean)
China wú qióng
Japan mu kyuu
knob
ribbon top
knob

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

Literally, this means "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 some contexts it can mean "immortality".

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

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

The Mysterious Bond Between People

The invisible force that brings people together forever
China yuán
Japan en
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a complicated single character. It can mean a lot of different things depending on how you read it.

In Japanese, it can mean fate; destiny; a mysterious force that binds two people together; a relationship between two people; bond; link; connection; family ties; affinity; opportunity; chance (to meet someone and start a relationship). It can also mean "someone to rely on", relative, reminder, memento, or the female given name, Yori.

It's basically the same in Chinese, where it's defined as cause, reason, karma, fate, or predestined affinity.

In Buddhist context, it's Pratyaya. This is the concept of indirect conditions, as opposed to direct causes. It's when something happens (meeting someone) by circumstance, or a contributing environment. Instead of a direct cause or act, it is a conditioning cause without direct input or action by the involved people.

Occasionally, this character is used in a facetious way to say hem, seam, or edge of clothing. In this case, it's the seam that brings or holds the clothing together.


縁Note: Japanese will tend to use the variant of this Kanji shown to the right. If you want this version (and are ordering this from the Japanese master calligrapher), click on the Kanji at the right instead of the button above.

Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

U.S. Marines Slogan
China yǒng yuǎn zhōng chéng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the clearest and most natural way to translate "Semper Fidelis" or "Always Faithful" into Mandarin Chinese. This 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.

Always in My Heart

China yǒng zhù wǒ xīn
knob
ribbon top
knob

This 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.

The last character means heart (but can also mean mind or soul).

Never Give Up

China yǒng bù fàng qì
knob
ribbon top
knob

The first character means "eternal" or "forever", the second means "not" (together they mean "never"). The last two characters mean "give up" or "abandon". Altogether, you can translate this proverb as "never give up" or "never abandon".

Depending on how you want to read this, it is also a statement that you will never abandon your hopes, dreams, family or friends.

Never Forget

China yǒng zhì bù wàng
knob
ribbon top
knob

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

Eternal Love / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng héng
knob
ribbon top
knob

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.

Remember

China míng jì
Japan mei ki
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means to keep in mind, to take note of, or simply to remember, in Chinese characters and Japanese Kanji.

The first character means to engrave, to inscribe, or to carve an inscription.

The second character means to remember, to note, mark, sign, to record, history, chronicle, or annals.

When used in the context of a person, this means to engrave on the heart, or to inscribe a memory in one's mind. In short, it's the idea of deeply remembering something, some event, or someone forever.

Mono no Aware

Japan mono no awa-re
knob
ribbon top
knob

This literally translates as, "the pathos of things", "an empathy toward things", or "a sensitivity to ephemera".

This is kind of a Japanese proverb for the awareness of impermanence, or transience of things.

Both things and the emotions about those things do not last forever.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

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.
