Unshakable / Determined

China tiě le xīn
Unshakable / Determined

This Chinese title means determined or unshakable.

This literally means "Iron Heart" or "Heart of Iron."

A Truly Determined Person Will Find a Solution

China yǒu zhì zhě shì jìng chéng
A Truly Determined Person Will Find a Solution

This Chinese proverb means, "A really determined person will find a solution."

It figuratively means, "Where there's a will, there's a way."

Destiny Determined by Heaven

China tiān yì
Japan teni
Destiny Determined by Heaven

天意 is a way to express destiny in a slightly religious way. Literally this means "Heaven's Wish" or "Heaven's Desire" with the idea of fate and destiny being derived as well. It suggests that your destiny comes from God / Heaven and that your path has already been chosen by a higher power.

My Japanese dictionary defines this word as "divine will" or "providence" but it also holds the meaning of "the will of the emperor." Therefore, I don't suggest this phrase if your audience is Japanese - it feels a little strange in Japanese anyway.

Determination

China jué xīn
Japan kesshin
Determination

This Chinese, Japanese, and Korean word holds the dictionary definition of "determination" but literally means, "determined heart."

The first character means "to determine" or "determined."

The second character means "heart," "mind" or "soul," so you can imagine that this form of "determination" partially means to put your heart into something. It can also be translated as resolve, resolution, or decision (as in a decision made and followed).

Determination to Achieve

Japan ichi nen ho kki
Determination to Achieve

This Japanese proverb, "Ichinen Hokki," suggests being resolved to do something or having a wholehearted intention to accomplish something.

Some will translate this as, "the determination to accomplish something," "turning over a new leaf and being determined to find success."

Esprit de Corps / Determination

Japan shi ki / shi ge
Esprit de Corps / Determination

This Japanese word can mean, "esprit de corps" or "determination to achieve."

When this is pronounced "Shige," it can refer to a place in Japan. It can also be a Japanese surname "Shiki."

Unswerving Determination / Firm and Persistent

China jiān yì
Unswerving Determination / Firm and Persistent

The title really says it all. This single Chinese word means, "firm and persistent" and/or "unswerving determination."

Tenacious / Tenacity

China wán qiáng
Japan gan kyou
Tenacious / Tenacity

These two characters together mean "Tenacious," "Hard to Defeat," or "Dogged."

Alone, the first character means mischievous, obstinate or stubborn. But it loses some of the mischievous meaning when the second character is added.

The second character means strength, force, powerful or better.

Determination to Achieve / Will-Power

China yì zhì
Japan ishi
Determination to Achieve / Will-Power

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.

Dependable

China jiān yì kě kào
Dependable

The first two characters mean resolute with firm determination.
The second two characters mean reliable.

Together, this creates a 4-character expression that clearly means dependable.

Strong Hearted / Strong Willed

China yì zhì jiān qiáng
Strong Hearted / Strong Willed

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.

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.

We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

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.
