Passions / Feelings / Emotions

China qíng
Japan jou / nasake
Passions / Feelings / Emotions

情 means feelings, emotions, passions, and sometimes refers to the situation you are in (with your emotions).

At least, this is the definition in Chinese and Japanese. 情 is a bit stronger in Korean Hanja, where it means affection, love, compassion, sympathy, tender feelings, and emotions. Just as in Chinese and Japanese, this can also refer to your circumstances or your facts of life in Korean.
情 is also the original Korean Hanja for the surname Jeong (정).

In Japanese, this can be the surname Sei.


China tóng qíng
Japan dou jou

These two characters mean compassion and sympathy in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, which makes this word universal.

Compassion is caring and understanding someone is hurt or troubled (even if you don't know them). It is wanting to help, even if all you can do is listen and say kind words. You forgive mistakes. You are a friend when someone needs a friend.

Predestined Love / Love by Fate

China qíng yuán
Predestined Love / Love by Fate

This Chinese word means predestined love, or love affinity.

This can be the fate, karma, or bond that brings two lovers together.

Empathy / Humanity

China rén qíng
Japan ninjou
Empathy / Humanity

This title can apply to a lot of meanings including: humanity; empathy; kindness; sympathy; human nature; human emotions; human interaction.


China rè qíng

This Chinese and Korean word for enthusiasm can also be translated as "Passion for a cause."

Enthusiasm is being cheerful, happy, and full of spirit. It is doing something wholeheartedly and eagerly. When you are enthusiastic, you have a positive attitude.

In some context, this could have a meaning of being extremely fond of something or having a fondness for a cause or person.

This Chinese word can also be translated as "sincere and warm" or literally "warm sentiment / affection."

See Also:  Motivation | Passion | Commitment | Tenacity | Happiness

Family Love

China qīn qíng
Family Love

親情 means affection, especially for family members. This can also be translated as "family love" or "love, especially within a married couple or between parents and children."


China yǒu qíng
Japan yuujou

Can also be translated as "camaraderie" or "fellowship." But this character combination is only used commonly in Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja.


China qíng bào
Japan jouhou
Intelligence / Information-Gathering

If you are a government spy, engaged in business espionage, or in some military intelligence department, this is both the title of what you are doing and what you are collecting about your enemy.

It is suggestive by itself of military intelligence but applies to corporate intelligence if you are keeping an eye on your competition in business.

Love and Affection

China ài qíng
Japan aijou
Love and Affection

愛情 is a universal word in Japanese, Korean and Chinese which means love and affection. Some may translate this as "love between a man and a woman." Depending on context, it can mean utter devotion or favorite.

Love and Honor

China qíng yì
Love and Honor

情義 means to love and honor in Chinese. 情義 is more or less the kind of thing you'd find in marriage vows.

The first character suggests emotions, passion, heart, humanity, sympathy, and feelings.

In this context, the second character means to honor your lover's wishes, and treat them justly and righteously (fairly). That second character can also be translated as "obligation," as in the obligation a husband and wife have to love each other even through difficult times.

In the context outside of a couple's relationship, this word can mean "comradeship."

Japanese may see this more as "humanity and justice" than "love and honor." It's probably best if your target is Chinese.

This is the short and sweet form, there is also a longer poetic form (you can find it here: Love and Honor if it's not on the page you are currently viewing).

See Also:  Love and Honor

Lover / Sweetheart

China qíng rén
Japan jou nin / jou jin
Lover / Sweetheart

情人 means lover, sweetheart or beloved in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

This term is gender-neutral, so anyone can use it.

Please note that this term can easily be read or used to mean "mistress" or the kind of lover that you have an affair with (especially in Japanese). The context in which this word is used affects the actual meaning. Husbands and wives or boyfriends and girlfriends can also use this term for each other with no ill-meaning.

Lust / Desire / Passion

China qíng yù
Japan jouyoku
Lust / Desire / Passion

情欲 can be defined as lust, sexual desire, sensual desire, carnal desire, carnal passions, sexual desire, and passion.

The first character means feeling, emotions, passionate, sympathy, affection, love, compassion, tender feelings, and sometimes circumstances or facts.

The second character means desire, longing, appetite, wish, covetousness, greed, passion, desire, and craving.

情欲 is universal in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja.

No Mercy

China wú qíng
Japan mujou
No Mercy

無情 is a terrible phrase for a calligraphy wall scroll. I'm not even sure any of my calligraphers will write this. It's just that many people have searched my website for "no mercy."

無情 means pitiless, ruthless, merciless, heartless, heartlessness, hardness, cruelty, or ruthless.

In the context of Buddhism, this is used to describe something or someone that is non-sentient (inhuman or without feeling).

Romantic Passion

China jī qíng
Japan gekijou
Romantic Passion

Also means "strong emotion" or "fervor."

The meaning in Japanese is a little more radical, as beyond "passion" it can be understood as "violent emotion" or "fury."

Passion for a Cause

China rè qíng
Japan netsujou
Passion for a Cause

Depending on context, this word can mean "cordial," "enthusiastic," "passionate" or "passionately."

This version is sometimes used in Japanese but the character order is more common in Chinese and Korean Hanja. The meaning in Japanese for this Kanji order is "ardour" or "zeal" but rarely used in modern Japan. I suggest you choose a different version of "passion" if your audience is Japanese.

See Also:  Persistence | Devotion | Tenacity | Commitment | Motivation

Enthusiasm / Passion for a Cause

China qíng rè
Japan jou netsu
Enthusiasm / Passion for a Cause

情熱 is the Japanese word that means enthusiasm, or "passion for a cause."

In some context, this could have a meaning of being extremely fond of something, or having fondness for a cause or person.

Can also be translated as passion, zeal, ardour, or fervor.

Note: 情熱 order is not natural in Chinese. However, a typical Chinese person can guess that this is a Japanese or Korean word and also understand the intended the meaning. This selection is best if your audience is Japanese or old-school Korean.

See Also:  Persistence | Devotion | Tenacity | Commitment | Motivation

Pure Heart

Pure and Innocent
China chún qíng
Japan jun jou
Pure Heart

純情 means, "Pure Heart" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

It's used to reflect the ideas of being "pure and innocent."

Depending on the context in which this title is used, it can relay "self-sacrificing devotion" or in some cases, "naïveté."
This would be in the same way we might refer to a young girl giving her lunch money to a beggar on the street. She has a pure and precious heart but perhaps is also a bit naive.

Brotherly and Sisterly Love

China shǒu zú qíng
Brotherly and Sisterly Love

手足情 is the love between siblings. When you love, protect, care for, and have a deep bond that only brothers or sisters can.

The actual translation is "Hand and Foot" but it is said the relationship between brothers or sisters is like that of hands and feet. They belong together, and complete the body. Even though this says "hand and foot," it will always be read with the brotherly and sisterly love meaning in Chinese.

Note: During the past 20 years, the "One child policy" in China is slowly making this term obsolete.


China jiě mèi qíng

姐妹情 is one way to say "sisterhood."

Literally, this means "sisters feeling, emotion, passion, or situation."

Fire and Water Have No Mercy

China shuǐ huǒ wú qíng
Fire and Water Have No Mercy

This Chinese proverb means, "fire [and] water have-not mercy." This serves to remind us that the forces of nature are beyond human control.

Some may also translation this as, "implacable fate."

Forgive and Forget

China lüè è jì yuán qíng
Forgive and Forget

This Chinese proverb means, "to overlook past faults," or "forgive and forget."

It's more literally, "Abridge or make small the scars from your past emotions." Basically, you should let it go.

The character breakdown:
略 (lüè) abbreviation; omission; abridge.
跡 (jī) ruins; scar; traces.
原 (yuán) former.
情 (qíng) feeling; emotion.

Life of Love

China ài qíng shēng huó
Japan aijyou seikatsu
Life of Love

愛情生活 is the Chinese proverb for "Loving Life." Some also translate this as "[your] Loving Life" or "Life full of Love."

愛情生活 is about being a loving person (to spouse and/or family) during your life. 愛情生活 is not the same as loving the state of being alive - not "love of living" but rather "being loving person during your life."

Note: Korean pronunciation is included above, though use of this proverb in Korean has not been verified.

This proverb can be understood in Japanese but it's primarily a Chinese proverb (it will "feel" Chinese to a Japanese person).

Love and Honor

China shēn qíng hòu yì
Love and Honor

深情厚義 means to love and honor. 深情厚義 is more or less the kind of thing you'd find in marriage vows.

The first two characters suggest deep love or deep emotions, passion, and feelings.
The last two characters mean generous justice or thick honor (the third character is an adjective that means generous or thick). It just means that you will honor your lover's wishes, and treat them justly and righteously (fairly).

This is the longer four-character version, there is also a short and sweet two character version.

See Also:  Love and Honor

Military Intelligence

China jūn shì qíng bào
Japan gunji-jouhou
Military Intelligence

軍事情報 is the full way to say "Military Intelligence."

The first two characters mean "military affairs."

The second two characters mean "intelligence" or "information-gathering."

If you work in the G2 section of your military unit, this is the wall scroll for you.

Love Conquers All

China ài qíng zhēng fú yī qiè
Love Conquers All

This is the Chinese phrase for, "love conquers all," or from Latin, "omnia vincit amor"

You are always a beauty in your lover’s eyes

China qíng rén yǎn lǐ chū xī shī
You are always a beauty in your lover’s eyes

Any woman with affection for Asian art and you will love a gift of this Chinese proverb calligraphy on a wall scroll. She will melt in your arms as you tell her the meaning of these characters.

Contained in this phrase is a reference to the most beautiful woman in Chinese history. Her name was Xi Shi, and she was known to have good looks that need not fine robes or make up. Her charms were so powerful that she brought down an entire kingdom (in a successful effort to bring honor and pride back to her people).

This is a great way to express that the woman in your life is your one love.

Fortune favors the brave

China Mìng yùn zhōng qíng yú yǒng shì
Fortune favors the brave

This means, "fortune favors the brave," in Chinese.

Love Will Find A Way

China yǒu qíng rén zhōng chéng juàn shǔ
Love Will Find A Way

This is the long version of the Chinese proverb that translates as, "Where there are lovers, love will find a way (to come together)".

Corinthians 13:4

Japan ai ha nintai tsuyoi. ai ha nasakebukai. netama nai. ai ha jiman se zu, takabura nai.
Corinthians 13:4

愛は忍耐強い愛は情け深いねたまない愛は自慢せず高ぶらない is 1st Corinthians 13:4 in Japanese.

In English, this reads:

1st Corinthians 13:4 (KJV) Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up...

1st Corinthians 13:4 (NIV) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

1st Corinthians 13:4 (Basic English) Love is never tired of waiting; love is kind; love has no envy; love has no high opinion of itself, love has no pride.

If you want a big "love" character written above the verse on your artwork, just make a note in the "special instructions" tab when you are customizing your artwork. There is no extra charge for that service on this special verse.

Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

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.
