The first female president of Brazil, Dilma Vana Roussef, 63, took office at 4:48 pm on January 1.

At the ceremony – an historic one for the nation – Dilma fit a quote from one of the country’s greatest writers, João Guimarães Rosa, into her acceptance speech. Words that inspire her and that may perhaps motivate our dear readers.

“The flow of life envelopes everything. Life is like this: it heats up and cools down, it squeezes and then loosens, it becomes calm and then restless. What it wants from us is courage,” said President Dilma, quoting the author of “Grande Sertão: Veredas” (“Great Hinterlands: Swampy Valleys”).

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”

    -Marianne Williamson
