It was referenced in a poem by Friedrich von Logau in 1694: "Gottes Mühlen mahlen langsam, mahlen aber trefflich klein / Ob aus Langmut er sich säumet, bringt mit Schärf' er alles ein" which was translated by Longfellow as: "Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all." "They Grind Exceedingly Small" was used as the title of a short story by Ben Ames Williams publishing in the Saturday Evening Post in 1919.
"The mill of God grinds slow but grinds exceeding(ly) small" is a verbatim quote from the English translation of the Avestan language hymn book of Zoroastrianism. (Hafiz 546)
"The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceeding small."
The words are quoted thus: "Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceedingly small; Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all."

It is from his collection of Sinngedichte (Sense Poems) titled Retribution. It is also attributed to Welsh poet George Herbert's Jacula Prudentum, "God's mill grind slow, but sure,"
