In aesthetics, the sublime (from the Latin sublīmis) is the quality of greatness, whether physical, moral, intellectual, metaphysical, aesthetic, spiritual or artistic. The term especially refers to a greatness beyond all possibility of calculation, measurement or imitation.
Famous quotes containing the word sublime:
“It will be generally admitted that Beethovens Fifth is the most sublime noise that has ever penetrated into the ear of man.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
