The beautiful in nature is a question of the form of the object, and this consists in limitation, whereas the sublime is to be found in an object even devoid of form, so far as it immediately involves, or else by its presence provokes a representation of limitlessness, yet with a super-added thought of its totality...the sublime…cannot be contained in any sensuous form, but rather concerns ideas of reason, which, although no adequate presentation is possible, may be excited and called into mind by that very inadequacy itself which does admit of sensuous presentation.
