Is anybody able to read these two kanji?

Those are:

「[寿]{ことぶき}」 (felicitations, longevity, etc.) and

「[無]{む}」 (nil, naught, etc.)

EDIT: The following website looks pretty good though I naturally have not checked everything on it. It gives you an idea of what the cursive looks like for all the basic kanji. You can check 「無」 there.
