Origin

The phrase is relatively new and seems evolved from many different similar terms or maybe originated in a foreign language and later translated into English. It can be linked to various idiomatic sayings which have close meanings. It is associated with many notable people in history, including Benjamin Franklin, Cameron Crowe, and Samuel Smiles. However, the phrase has been altered over time, retaining its meaning, and it is believed to be in existence since the 17th century.

The earliest printed record of the phrase (in its exact form) dates back only to 1969 in Soviet Literature, Issues 7-12, page number 151 that reads:

“Literature itself eternally stands on trial before new generations, but that is the fate only of writers who have served their own age as eternity. In this sense time puts everything in its place.”
