It is the Journey, Not the Destination

shì lǚ tú bú shì mù dì
It is the Journey, Not the Destination Scroll

是旅途不是目的 is the English proverb, "It's the journey, not the destination", translated into Chinese.

The Destination is Nothing Without the Journey

bù jīng lǚ tú bù chéng mù dì
The Destination is Nothing Without the Journey Scroll

不經旅途不成目的 is the English proverb, "The destination is nothing without the journey", translated into Chinese.

A Journey of 1000 Miles Begins with a Single Step

qiān lǐ zhī xíng shǐ yú zú xià
A Journey of 1000 Miles Begins with a Single Step Scroll

千里之行始於足下 is a Chinese proverb that means, "a thousand mile journey begins with the first step".

This proverb figuratively means, "big accomplishments come from an accumulation of little achievements made one by one".

A Journey of 1000 Miles Begins with a Single Step

senri no michi mo ippo kara
sen ri no michi mo i-ppo ka ra
A Journey of 1000 Miles Begins with a Single Step Scroll

This is the Japanese version of an ancient Chinese proverb that means, "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".

Some will also translate this as a 1000 mile road starts with one brick (a small amount).

In this case, the real measurement is an ancient Chinese "li" or 里, which is romanized as "ri" in Japanese. It's about half a kilometer, so three 里 would be a western mile. A journey of 333 miles begins with a single step, just doesn't sound as natural.


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

Journey / Travel

lǚ xíng
ryokou
Journey / Travel Scroll

旅行 means journey or travels. It is sometimes used to refer to a vacation.

If you like a good adventure, maybe this is the word for you.

Journey / Travel

ryo / tabi
Journey / Travel Scroll

旅 is the single Chinese character, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for trip, travel, or journey.

In older context, this could refer to an army brigade or a 500-man battalion from the Zhou-dynasty Chinese army.

Life is a Journey

rén shēng shì yí duàn lǚ chéng
Life is a Journey Scroll

This proverb means "Life is a Journey".

If this matches your philosophy, this might be the perfect Chinese calligraphy for you.

Journey of Life

jinseikouro
Journey of Life Scroll

If you believe that life is a journey, this is a nice Japanese title for you wall.

人生行路 means "journey of life" in Japanese Kanji. The actual word order is more like "life (人生) journey (行路)" as Japanese grammar is a bit different than English.

Note: The "journey" part can also be translated as "road", so this is also how to say, "the road of life".

Pleasant Journey

yī lù shùn fēng
ichirojunpuu
Pleasant Journey Scroll

This Chinese and Japanese proverb means, "to have a pleasant journey", "sailing with the wind at your back", or as an expression to say, "everything is going well".

A Journey of 1000 Miles Feels Like One

sen ri mo ichi ri
A Journey of 1000 Miles Feels Like One Scroll

This Japanese proverb states that, "A journey of a thousand miles feels like only one mile". It is understood that in the proverb, this applies when going to see the one you love.

Note that the "mile" or 里 used in this proverb is an old Chinese "li" (pronounced "ri" in Japanese). It's not actually a mile, as the measurement is really closer to 500 meters (it would take 3 of these to get close to a western mile). Still, 1000里 (333 miles) is a long way.

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.

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.
