敬愛 is the short and sweet way to say "love and respect" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
Besides "respect and love," this could be translated as, "respect and affection," "Reverence and love," or "reverent love."
In Japanese, this can also be the personal name Yoshinari.
相敬相愛 is an old Chinese proverb that suggests love and respect go together and are to be exchanged between people (especially couples).
The first two characters mean, "exchanging respect" or "mutual respect."
The last two characters create a word that means, "to love each other" or "mutual love."
You'll notice that the first and third characters are the same. So you can read this literally as something like "Exchange respect, exchange love" or "Mutual respect, mutual love." In English, we'd probably just say, "Mutual love and respect." Grammar differs in every language - So while the literal translation might sound a bit awkward in English, this phrase is very natural in Chinese.
相愛互敬 is a nice way to say "Love and Respect" in Chinese.
This proverb is about the mutual exchange of love and respect within a good relationship.
The first two characters create a word that means, "to love each other" or "mutual love."
The third character means mutual, interlocking, or in some contexts "to dovetail" (as in the way joints are made in fine furniture).
The last character means, "to respect," "to venerate," "to salute," "reverence," or simply "respect."
This Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja title can mean, "love and respect," "kindness and respect," "to love with reverence," "charm," "amiability," "winsomeness," "courtesy," or "ingratiating behavior."
Note: The wide-ranging definitions show that this word is a bit ambiguous without the context of being used in a sentence.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
