Proud Of One’s Name

China xíng bù gēng míng zuò bù gǎi xìng
Proud Of One’s Name

This Chinese proverb means, "I am who I am (and I'm not ashamed)."

Figuratively, it means to be proud of one's name and stand by one's actions.

Proud / Pride / Lofty-Minded

China ào shì
Proud / Pride / Lofty-Minded

傲世 is a word used to describe someone that is very proud, and holds themselves above others but with a valid (earned) reason to do so. 傲世 is what you would use to describe the way a mighty general of ancient China like Cao Cao acted or a more modern person like General Patton carried himself.

If you hang this word on your wall it suggests that you hope to achieve that same level of pride from accomplishment.

Pride

China zì háo
Pride

自豪 is used to convey "feeling a sense of pride." This can be the pride you feel in yourself, or the sense of pride in belonging to a certain group, team or organization.

Pride

China zì zūn

Pride

自尊 can mean "pride," "self-respect" or "self-esteem." The first character means "oneself" and the second can mean revered, valuable, precious, noble, exalted, honorable or simply "pride."

I have also seen this two-character word translated as "amour propre," self-regard, and self-pride.

自尊 is universal between Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja written languages. It may also be understood in old Vietnamese (they once used Chinese characters as well).

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 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.
