Three of the most important goals in life in Chinese traditional thought are the propitious blessings of happiness (fú ), professional success or prosperity (lù ), and longevity (shòu ).

The Chinese character shòu  is found on textiles, furniture, ceramics, jewelry and virtually every object conceivable, generally in its more attractive complex ideograph  but also in its simplified (post-1950) form . The ideograph may appear alone or be surrounded by flowers, bats, or other good luck symbols, but will always hold a central position.

Perhaps the most common Chinese auspicious saying concerning longevity is that found on scrolls in nearly every Chinese calligraphy shop in the world: shòu shān fú hǎi , which can be translated as "May your life be as steadfast as the mountains and your good fortune as limitless as the seas".
