BARON FRIEDRICH VON LOGAU
German poet and epigrammatist
(1604 - 1655)

Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small;
  Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all.
      - [Retribution]

When by night the frogs are croaking, kindle buy a torch's fire;
  Ha! how soon they all are silent! Thus Truth silence the liar.
      - see Longfellow's translation "Poetic Aphorisms, Truth"
        [Truth]

Through the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small;
  Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all.
      - Retribution, from the "Sinngedichte"
        [Retribution]

Man-like is it to fall into sin,
  Fiend-like is it to dwell therein,
    Christ-like is it for sin to grieve,
      God-like is it all sin to leave.
      - Sinngedichte--Sin [Sin]
