Strength / Vigor / Energy

Physical Strength
China qì lì
Japan kiryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This word can mean any of the words in the title above, and in some context, can also mean, effort, will-power, or talent. This word refers mostly to physical strength (as opposed to mental or spiritual).


気In modern Japan, they use a simplified first character for this word. If you want to order this title with that special Japanese version, click on the character to the right instead of the button above.

Power / Strength

China
Japan chikara / ryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

The simplest form of "power" or "strength".

In Japanese it is pronounced "chikara" when used alone, and "ryoku" when used in a sentence (there are also a few other possible pronunciations of this Kanji in Japanese).

In some context, this can mean ability, force, physical strength, capability, and influence.

Strength / Ability

China lì liàng
Japan riki ryou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a general strength term. It can refer to mental or physical strength (depending on context). This word can also be used to describe strength in terms of capability, capacity, ability and even tact. Some may translate this as power or force.

Inner Strength / Self-Improvement

China zì qiáng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the kind of inner-strength that applies to a person who has will-power and can inspire themselves to do great things.

This word can also be the creed of a person that always pursues self-improvement.

Other translations: self-strengthening, striving for improvement, self-improvement, strive to become stronger, and self-renewal.

Inner Strength

China nèi zài lì liàng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the slightly-verbose way to say inner-strength. The first two characters mean "intrinsic" or "inner". The second two characters mean "power", "force" or "strength" (especially physical strength). This is more a short phrase rather than just a word in Chinese and Korean. This can sort of be understood in Japanese, but it's not normal/proper Japanese.

Inner Strength

(short version)
China nèi lì
Japan nai ryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the shorter version of inner-strength (can also be translated as "internal force"). The first character holds the meaning of "inner" or "internal". The second character means "power", "force" or "strength".

This is kind of a Kung Fu way of talking about an inner power or strength from within. This is sort of a way to express "inner-chi". This is clearly something that you might hear in a real Chinese Kung Fu movie.

While understood in both Chinese and Japanese, this can have a secondary meaning of "inner stress" in Japanese.

Inner Strength is Better than
Outward Appearance

Japanese
Japan naimen no tsuyosa ha gaiken no yosa ni masaru
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Japanese proverb literally translates as "inner/internal strength/power [versus] outward-appearance [the] merit/virtue/good quality [does] excel/surpass/exceed/outweigh".

More naturally in English, this would be "Inner Strength Outweighs Outward Appearance".

Inner Strength is Better than
Outward Appearance

China biǎo zhuàng bù rú lǐ zhuàng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This literally translates as:
[Better to be] strong inside than [to be] strong outside.

The ancient original meaning was:
[An] able [husband] outside [working to support a family is] not as good as [an] able [wife] inside [working and saving to take care of the family].

The current meaning is:
Inner strength is more important than outward appearance.

Always Striving for Inner Strength

China zì qiáng bú xī
knob
ribbon top
knob

This proverb or idiom suggests that the pursuit self-improvement is eternal. It can also be a suggestion to strive unremittingly in life.

The first two characters mean inner-strength with the idea of self-improvement. The last two characters mean "never rest" or "striving without giving up".

Some will translate these four characters as, "Exert and strive hard without any let up".

With all the strength of your heart

Japanese only
Japan omo i ki ri
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can be translated as, "with all one's strength", "with all one's heart", "to the limits of your heart", or "to the end of your heart/emotions".

The character breakdown:
思い (omoi) thought; mind; heart; feelings; emotion; sentiment; love; affection; desire; wish; hope; expectation; imagination; experience
切り (kiri) bounds; limits.

Spiritual Strength / Strength of Spirit

China jīng shén lì liàng
Japan seishin rikiryou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This title speaks of one's soul or spirit, and the capacity or strength that soul possesses.

The first two characters mean mind, heart, spirit, and/or soul.

The last two characters mean strength, capacity, or ability.

Note: Separately, these are two words in Japanese, and can be pronounced, but this does not make a natural title in Japanese (best if your audience is Chinese).

Fortitude / Strength of Character

China gāng yì
Japan gouki
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Japanese and Chinese word means, "resolute and firm", "fortitude", "firmness of character", "hardihood", "manliness" or "macho".

Strength and Love in Unity

(Japanese only)
Japan riki ai fu ni
knob
ribbon top
knob

This proverb literally means:
"Strength [and] Love [are] Not Two [separate ideas/concepts/things]".

You'll find this proverb translated from Japanese to English as:
Love and strength are not separate.
Power and love are indivisible.
Strength and love in harmony.
Strength and love stand together.

Old Japanese grammar is quite different than English, and so this proverb says a lot within the brevity of just 4 characters. If you just read these characters directly as, "Strength Love Not Two", you'd probably miss the real meaning.


According to the Swedish Shorinji Kempo Federation, this is the second characteristic of Shorinji Kempo.

This post really explains the concept best in my opinion: Bushido by MS: Riki Ai Fu Ni, which states: "Riki Ai Funi" is the philosophy that power (Riki) and love (Ai) are indivisible. More concretely, a person, who is powerful but does not have love, cannot control and misuse his/her power; on the other hand, a person, who has loved ones but is not powerful enough, cannot protect himself/herself nor loved ones.

Herculean Strength

China qiáng lì
Japan kyou ryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This word means herculean strength, powerful, or strong. I've even hear this described as, "strength to carry a mountain".


Note: This can also be the Japanese surname Gouriki (like Mr. Strong).

Strength and Courage

China lì liàng hé yǒng qì
knob
ribbon top
knob

While not a typical Chinese phrase, this is how to write "strength and courage".

If this is an important idea for you, we can make a great custom Chinese "strength and courage" wall scroll for you.

Strength and Honor

China lì liàng yǔ róng yù
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is, "strength and honor" in Chinese.

The first two characters are usually understood as (physical) strength, but can also mean power or force.

The middle character is a connecting particle like, "and".

The last two characters are a way to say, honor, but can also be understood as honorable reputation, honorary, or glory.

Strength and Honor

Japanese only
Japan chikara to mei yo
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is, "strength and honor" in Japanese Kanji (with one Hiragana).

The first Kanji is understood as strength, power, or force.

The second character is a connecting particle like, "and" or "with".

The last two Kanji mean honor, honour, credit, or prestige. This last word is also used in the Bushido code to mean honor.

Strength and Love

China lì yǔ ài
knob
ribbon top
knob

While not a common title for a wall scroll in China, this means, "strength and love" or "power and love" in Chinese characters.

Strength and Courage

Japan riki to yu ki
knob
ribbon top
knob

This may not be the most common Japanese phrase, but this is how to write "strength and courage" in Japanese.

Strength: Strong and Solid

(Japanese)
China qiáng gù
Japan kyouko
knob
ribbon top
knob

Means firmness, stability, security, and strength in Japanese. It's not used commonly in China, but it means "powerful", "firm", "solid", "strong" or "better than others" in Chinese. There is a slight variation in the top of the first character between Chinese and Japanese. Because this is more a Japanese word, we are showing the Japanese form here.

This is also a Korean word, but Korean Hanja uses the Chinese form of the first character (one tiny stroke is a little different), so just let me now if your audience is Korean when you place your order, and we'll have it written in the Chinese/Korean version.

Physical Strength

Japanese / Simplified Chinese
China tǐ lì
Japan tairyoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

Means "physical strength" or "physical power".

The first character was first simplified in Japan. Then that simplified version became the standard in mainland China. Just in case you want this version, it is offered here. I suggest it if you audience is Japanese. Most Chinese know the older traditional version.

This word can also be defined: stamina; endurance; physical strength; resilience; resistance to disease; clout; stability.

Physical Strength

Traditional Chinese and Korean
China tǐ lì
Japan tai ryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

Means "physical strength", "physical power", or "physical stamina".

God Give Me Strength

Japanese only
Japan kami ga watashi ni chikara o atae te kudasai
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is "God give me strength" in Japanese.

Flexibility Overcomes Strength

Softness Overcomes Hardness
China yǐ róu kè gāng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can be translated as "Softness Overcomes Hardness", "Flexibility Overcomes Power", "Flexibility Overcomes Strength", "Overcoming Powerful Strength with Flexibility", or "Use Softness to Conquer Strength".

God Give Me Strength

China yuàn shàng dì gěi wǒ lì liàng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a wish or a prayer that you might call out at a desperate time.

Translated by us for a military serviceman in Iraq - obviously he may have a need to use this phrase often, though I am not sure where he's going to find a place to hang a wall scroll.

Vitality

China shēng mìng lì
Japan seimeiryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This word can mean "vitality" or "libido". The first two characters mean "life" or "life force". The last character is a common word that means "strength". So together you get the meaning "life strength" which is the essence of vitality. Some will also translate this word as "good health".


See Also...  Life Force | Health

Strong / Healthy

Japanese
Japan sukoyaka
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a verbose way to say strong and healthy in Japanese. This is the "strong" that is appropriate for an athlete.

Beyond "healthy", it can also mean strength, persistence, vigorous or invigorated.

Japanese also use the first Kanji to mean the same thing. This version just adds two hiragana which serve to emphasize or amplify the word and clarify the meaning.

Strong / Powerful / Force

China qiáng
Japan kyou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This "strong" character means strength, force, powerful, better, stubborn, and stiff (yes, all of this in one character). This "strong" has less to do with physical strength and more to do with having a winning attitude, or just having the ability to win at something.

Note that most of the time, this character is pronounced "qiang", but when used with the meaning of stubborn, unyielding, or stiff, it is pronounced "jiang" in Chinese.

Also, sometimes "qiang" is used in modern Chinese to describe people that do crazy things (Example: Bicycling from Beijing to Tibet alone). I sometimes can be found outside my Beijing apartment wearing nothing but shorts and a tee-shirt while eating an ice cream during a snow storm, just to hear my neighbors call me "qiang". Maybe they mean "strong" but perhaps they are using the new meaning of "crazy strong".

Also a Korean Hanja with same meaning, but mostly used in compound words.

This is used in Japanese (though normally in compound words). In Japanese, it has the same meaning, but in some context can mean "a little more than..." or "a little over [some amount]". Most Japanese would read this as tough, strength, stiff, hard, inflexible, obstinate, or stubborn.

Strong / Powerful

China qiáng zhuàng
Japan kyousou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is an adjective that means powerful or strong. It can also be translated as able-bodied, robust, or sturdy. This version of strength suggests muscularity.


壮Note that the second character was simplified in Japan after WWII (also simplified in mainland China, but not for calligraphy). If you want the modern Japanese/simplified version, please click on the Kanji shown to the right.

Gutsy / Daring / Bold

China pò lì
Japan hakuryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Chinese word is a form of personal strength. It is a word that describes a person who is willing to take a risk. In English we might say, "Someone with guts".

An example might be a person that is not rich, but invests a lot of money into something (knowing they could double their money, or lose it all). Win or lose, this is a person that knows or pushes their potential.

Tearing this word apart, the first character means "to compel", urgent, urge, force, imminent, or "spur on". The second means power, strong, bear, or exert.

Note: This is also a word in Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja, but with a meaning more like force, intensity, appeal, strength, impact, force, or simply power.

Perseverance / Will-Power

China yì lì
knob
ribbon top
knob

These two characters are a way to express "perseverance" with the idea of "willpower" in Chinese and old Korean Hanja. It can also mean "strong willed".

The first character means "strong" and "persistent", while the second means "strength" and "power".

Indomitable / Unyielding

China bù qū bù náo
Japan fukutsu futou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a long word by Chinese standards. At least it is often translated as a single word into English. It's actually a proverb in Chinese.

This simply means "Indomitable" or "Unyielding".

If you want to break it down, you can see that the first and third characters are the same. Both meaning "not" (they work as a suffix to make a negative or opposite meaning to whatever character follows). The second character means "bendable". The last means "scratched" or "bothered".
So this really means "Won't be bent, can't be bothered". I have also seen it written as "Will not crouch, will not submit". This comes from the fact that the second character can mean, "to crouch" and the last can mean "to submit" (as in "to give in" such as "submitting to the rule of someone else"). This may explain better why these four characters mean "indomitable".

Notes:
Some will translate this as "indomitable spirit"; however, technically, there is no character to suggest the idea of "spirit" in this word.
The first two characters can be a stand-alone word in Chinese.
In Japanese, this is considered to be two words (with very similar meanings).
The same characters are used in Korean, but the 2nd and 4th characters are swapped to create a word pronounced "불요불굴" in Korean.
Just let me know if you want the Korean version, which will also make sense in Japanese, and though not as natural, will also make sense in Chinese as well.

Healthy Living

China jiàn kāng shēng huó
Japan kenkou seikatsu
knob
ribbon top
knob

If you are into healthy living, this might be a great selection for a wall scroll to hang in your home. The first two characters speak of health, vitality, vigor and being of sound body. The second two mean living or life (daily existence).


See Also...  Vitality | Health

Indomitable / Persistence / Fortitude

China bù qū
Japan fukutsu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the short form of a longer Chinese word, and also a word used in Korean and Japanese to express the idea of being indomitable. It literally means, "will not bend", "will not crouch", "will not yield", "will not flinch", or "will not submit".

Note: Some will translate this as "indomitable spirit"; however, technically, there is no character to suggest the idea of "spirit" in this word.


See Also...  Tenacity | Fortitude | Undaunted

Strong / Healthy

China jiàn
Japan ken
knob
ribbon top
knob

This "strong" character is the more "healthy" version of strong. This is the "strong" that is appropriate for an athlete.

Beyond "healthy", it can also mean strength, persistence, vigorous or invigorated.

Will-Power / Self-Control

China yì zhì lì
Japan ishi ryoku
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the form of will power or self-control is about having the determination or tenacity to keep going.

In Japanese, this is the power of will, strength of will, volition, intention, intent, or determination.

Strong Woman

China nǚ qiáng rén
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the best way to say "strong woman" or "strong and independent woman" in Chinese.

Grammar in China is a bit different, so these three characters literally read as "female strength person" or "woman strong person". This might sound funny in English, but this is a natural-sounding title in Chinese.

Determination to Achieve / Will-Power

China yì zhì
Japan ishi
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Chinese, Korean, and Japanese word means, "determination to achieve". It can also be translated as: will; willpower; determination; volition; intention; intent.

In Japanese, this can also be the given name Ishi.

Strong / Robust

China zhuàng
Japan sou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This "strong" character means "to strengthen" or robust. This brings images of a muscle-bound hulk of a weight lifter or body builder to an Asian person who sees this character.

Note that in Korean and Japanese, this character is normally part of compound words, and is not seen alone too often.


壮Note that the this character was simplified in Japan after WWII (also simplified in mainland China, but not for calligraphy). If you want the modern Japanese/simplified version, please click on the Kanji shown to the right.

Perseverance / Indomitable / Invincible Fortitude

Japanese
China jiān rěn bù bá
Japan kenninfubatsu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Japanese version of the 4-character perseverance proverb. This would be understood in Chinese but it's not commonly written this way in Chinese.


忍Note that when writing this as Kanji, Japanese sometimes write the second Kanji in the form shown to the right. Yes, it's just one stroke that is slightly different in location, crossing another stroke in this alternate Japanese Kanji form. If you have a preference, let us know when you order.

Due to some odd computer coding conventions, these two character forms were combined/merged into the same code point - thus you will not see Kanji images of more Japanese form as you select options for your scroll.

Perseverance / Fortitude

China jiǎn rěn
Japan ken nin
knob
ribbon top
knob

The first character means "strong", "solid", "firm", "unyielding" or "resolute".
The second character means "to beat", "to endure", or "to tolerate".
Together they speak of the strength from within yourself. Some may also translate this as "long-suffering" in a more Biblical sense.

This is a common term in Chinese and Korean Hanja, but a little less commonly-used in modern Japanese Kanji. For that reason, this selection is best if your audience is Chinese or Korean.


忍忍 Note that when writing this as Kanji, Japanese will tend to write the second Kanji a little differently. If you select our Japanese master calligrapher, please expect the form where the little horizontal stroke crosses the vertical stroke. See differences in the images to the right. Technically, they are both the same character, and will be read the same in either language.

Woman of Strong Character
Woman Hero

China nǚ jiá
Japan joketsu
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can mean brave woman, heroine, lady of character, distinguished woman, outstanding woman, and sometimes prominent woman.

In modern usage, some people might use this to give a title to women like Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, or Sarah Palin. I would rather use it for a woman like Araceli Segarra (the first woman from Spain to climb Mt. Everest).

Good Health

China jiàn kāng
Japan kenkou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the best way to express good health in Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

These characters also suggest the ideas of being solid, strong, sound, wholesome and at peace.

Can also be used to express "healthy", "vitality", or "well-being".


See Also...  Health | Vitality | Wellness

Good Health / Healthy / Vigor

Also suggests being at peace
China kāng
Japan kou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a single character that means good health or vigor in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This character can also mean peaceful, at ease, or abundant in some contexts.

Please note that this is rarely seen alone in Japanese Kanji. In Japanese, it is used both for health-related compound words and to denote the kouhou through koushou eras of Japan.

In Korean, this can also be the family name "Kang" (caution: not the only family name romanized as Kang in Korean).

Mighty / Powerful / Strong

China qiáng dà
Japan kyoudai
knob
ribbon top
knob

This can mean mighty, powerful, large, formidable, or strong.

This term is often used to describe soldiers/troops/warriors, and whole armies.

Perseverance

(2 characters)
China jiān rèn
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a simpler version that just holds the meaning of "fortitude", "steadfast" and "persistent".

Strong and Beautiful

China jiàn měi
Japan takemi
knob
ribbon top
knob

We don't really have a word like this in English, but these two characters create a word that means "strong and beautiful". It could also be translated as "healthy and beautiful".

Note: This is a word in Chinese and Korean, but it's also the family name Takemi in Japanese. The characters hold the same meaning in Japanese, but It's kind of like having the English name Stillwell, when few people would perceive the meanings of still and well.

Strong bones come from hard knocks

China bù kē bù pèng gǔ tóu bù yìng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This Chinese proverb literally translates as: Without being knocked around a bit, [one's] bones won't become hard.

Figuratively, this means: One can't become strong without first being tempered by "hard knocks".

While true for everyone, this sounds like the "Iron Body" form of Kung Fu, where practitioners bodies are beaten (and often bone fractured) in order to become stronger.
For the rest of us, this is just about how we can be tempered and build character through the hardships in our lives.

This is not a common title for a wall scroll in China.

Strong Hearted / Strong Willed

China yì zhì jiān qiáng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This phrase can mean either "strong hearted", "strong willed" or "determination".

The first two characters can be translated as "will", "willpower", "determination", "volition", "intention", or "intent". But, it should be noted that this first part possess the element of "heart" in the lower portion of both characters (they also partially carry the meaning "with whole heart").

The last two characters mean "strong" or "staunch".

Chinese word order and grammar is a bit different than English, so in this case, they are in reverse order of English, but have the correct meaning in a natural form.

Tempering Makes Strong Steel

Hardship Develops Strong Character
China bǎi liàn cái chéng gāng
knob
ribbon top
knob

This literally translates as: Only after much tempering is steel produced.

Figuratively, this means: True character must be tested in hardship.

This is a mild form of saying, "Whatever doesn't kill me, makes me stronger".

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.

If you have not set up your computer to display Chinese, the characters in this table probably look like empty boxes or random text garbage.
This is why I spent hundreds of hours making images so that you could view the characters in the "strength" listings above.
If you want your Windows computer to be able to display Chinese characters you can either head to your Regional and Language options in your Win XP control panel, select the [Languages] tab and click on [Install files for East Asian Languages]. This task will ask for your Win XP CD to complete in most cases. If you don't have your Windows XP CD, or are running Windows 98, you can also download/run the simplified Chinese font package installer from Microsoft which works independently with Win 98, ME, 2000, and XP. It's a 2.5MB download, so if you are on dial up, start the download and go make a sandwich.

Some people may refer to this entry as Strength Kanji, Strength Characters, Strength in Mandarin Chinese, Strength Characters, Strength in Chinese Writing, Strength in Japanese Writing, Strength in Asian Writing, Strength Ideograms, Chinese Strength symbols, Strength Hieroglyphics, Strength Glyphs, Strength in Chinese Letters, Strength Hanzi, Strength in Japanese Kanji, Strength Pictograms, Strength in the Chinese Written-Language, or Strength in the Japanese Written-Language.
