Who advised people to simply hold important questions in their minds?

I was talking with a friend who informed me that he had read advice from an important person (as distinct from celebrity) to simply hold a pressing question in your mind and go about your life (though the answer might be years in coming, depending on its depth).
Who was this? My friend thought it might be Isaac Newton. Can anyone provide me with a URL to a source?
BTW, googling "hold a question in your mind" returns tons of hits on bibliomancy, etc., which is not
what I'm after, however mystical the advice I'm describing sounds.
