The mills of the gods grind slowly, but they grind exceeding fine
Justice maybe slow but it will come eventually.
The earliest known use of this expression is by 3rd century Greek philosopher Sextus Empiricus, who wrote 'The mills of the gods grind slowly, but they grind small.'
Sextus Empiricus lived in the early 3rd century AD, possibly late 2nd century. He was a physician and philosopher who is thought to have lived mainly in
Alexandria and Athens.
Although little is known of his life, some of his
writings (Outlines of Pyrrhonism and Against the Dogmatists)
survived the European "Dark Ages" to be rediscovered in the mid-16th century, at
which point they were translated into Latin and caused quite a stir as they
represented the most complete surviving account of ancient Greek and Roman
Skepticism, in the context of classical philosophy, refers to
the teachings and the traits of the Skeptikoi, a school of philosophers
who took the position that one should avoid the postulation of final truths.
