: Can anyone tell me the orignator or origin of the term .. "the wheels of justice turn exceedingly slow" .. ? .. Or its variants?

see http://www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/9/messages/842.html
"Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small;
Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all."
There are many variants--"the gods", "fine" rather than "small", etc.
