The word 'calligraphy' is derived from the Greek words 'killi' and 'graphos', meaning 'beautiful and 'writing'.
As a calligrapher you strive to express harmony and emotion through the forms of letters. Even if you do not understand the actual translation of the calligraphic word, you are instantly drawn to the beautiful art of the letter forms. This is why calligraphy is known as 'beautiful writing'. You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words... From "the history of calligraphy"
