A long, healthy, prosperous life is one of the most admirable and highest goals of humanity. It only makes sense that the Chinese along with so many other cultures would establish many symbols to represent the facets of longevity.
Longevity is commonly recognized as one of the Five Blessings ( longevity, wealth, health, love of virtue, a peaceful death) of Chinese belief that are often depicted in the homophonous rendition of five flying bats because the word for "bat" in Chinese sounds like the word for "good fortune" or "happiness" or in this case, "blessings".
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".
