無窮 is the Chinese and Korean word meaning infinity, eternity, infinitude, infinite or endless.
無窮 literally translates as "without [ever becoming] exhausted/poor", and in that context, can mean "inexhaustible" or "boundless" but this is usually read as "without end". Some extended definitions include eternity, infinitude, or immortality.
In certain context, it can mean "immortality".
The first character means "never" or "not". The second means "exhausted", "finished", or "ending".
Note: 無窮 is a Japanese word but rarely used in modern Japan.
無限 is the Chinese and Japanese word meaning infinity, unlimited or unbounded.
無限 literally translates as "without limits" or "without [being] bound".
The first character means "never" or "not" or like a prefix "un-".
The second means "limited", "restricted", or "bound".
Please note that the Japanese definition leans more toward "infinity" and the Chinese is more about being "boundless" or "without limits".
In Korean, this means infinity, infinitude, or boundlessness. But in Korean, this term has many interpretations or contexts, so your intended meaning might come out a little vague or ambiguous.
苦海無邊, 回頭是岸 can be translated almost directly as, "The sea of bitterness has no bounds, turn your head to see the shore".
Often this proverb refers to how Buddhist enlightenment can allow one to shed off the abyss of worldly suffering. But it can apply to other religions. If you find yourself trapped in the hardship of this worldly life, take a new turn, and seek a path to salvation.
This means, "to infinity and beyond", in Japanese.
This is how the slogan/phrase from Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear was translated from the movie into Japanese.
Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

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.
The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.
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.
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.
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.
