I'm searching for a Lewis quote, in which he says that certain objects or experiences can contain a foretaste of heaven, but if a person were later to look in that same place for that glimpse of joy, they would not find it, because it's not the object or experience that they are looking for, but the feeling of heaven behind it.

Any help or direction would be much appreciated.

Hi Adam - Try the chapter "Heaven" in The Problem of Pain.

The book you are probably looking for is the "Weight of Glory." In the first chapter Lewis addresses the topic you are talking about.
