Original languageEdit

The full text of Diels, Die Fragmente der Vorsokratiker: griechisch und deutsch‎ is online at GoogleBooks (ed. 1, v. 1, 1903 and ed. 2, v. 2, 1910) if anybody wants to add the original language quotes to the article. It's all Greek to me. ~ Ningauble 18:34, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

these now show up as "no preview", but here is the archive.org link:[1] --Dbachmann (talk) 13:38, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
