Portuguese translation:visão e determinação // fôlego e visão // sabedoria vasta e profunda
Explanation:
"Depth and breadth" is not a technical term, but an expression that combines sonority and a broad meaning. In dictionaries:<br>
<br>
Sense 2<br>
depth -- (degree of psychological or intellectual depth)
profundity, profoundness -- (intellectual depth; penetrating knowledge; keen insight; etc: "the depth of my feeling"; "the profoundness of the silence") <br>
Sense 5<br>
astuteness, profundity, profoundness, depth -- (the intellectual ability to penetrate deeply into ideas)
wisdom, sapience -- (ability to apply knowledge or experience or understanding or common sense and insight) <br>
<br>
Sense 1<br>
breadth, comprehensiveness -- (an ability to understand a broad range of topics; ``a teacher must have a breadth of knowledge of the subject'' )
intelligence -- (the ability to comprehend; to understand and profit from experience) <br>
<br>
With this in mind I thought about quite a few translations. I prefer the first one, which deals with sound and is more abstract and metaphorical, thus allowing more interpretation of meanings; the last one is more literal and could sound more narcisistic... I suggest you to make your own choice, and of course to rearrange the text around so it sounds positive and emphatic.
