From Rainer Maria Rilke’s July 1903 Letter to a Young Poet.

Perhaps then, some day far into the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

I love, love, love that: Live your way into the answer.

Here is the original German version:

Vielleicht leben sie dann allmählich, ohne es zu merken, eines fernen Tages in die Antwort hinein.
