Beauty therefore is a relation, and the apprehension of it a comparison. The sense of beauty in fact is a comparison, is it not? And yet we have not said what beauty is...I am sure there is in the higher forms of beauty - at least I seem to feel - something mystical, something I don't know how to call it. Is not there now something beyond what you [can] explain?
