七転八起

Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight
Japanese Calligraphy Scroll


This Japanese proverb relays the vicissitudes of life. Some would more naturally translate it into English as "Always rising after a fall or repeated failures".

Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight - Japanese Philosophy Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

The first Kanji is literally "7". The second means "fall down" (sometimes this Kanji means "turn around", "revolve" or "turn over", but in this case, it holds the meaning of "fall"). The third is "8". And the last is "get up", "rouse", or "rise".

Basically, if you fail 7 times, you should recover from those events and be prepared to rise an 8th time. This also applies if it is the world or circumstances that knock you down seven times...
...just remember that you have the ability to bounce back from any kind of adversity.

Note: This can be pronounced in two ways. One is "shichi ten hakki". The other is "nana korobi ya oki".
