Original Greek version of a text.

Can you help me find the original Greek version of something?

I'm looking for Hesiod's "Works and Days", specifically verso (ll. 678-694). Here's a copy in English.

I can't seem to find it in the Greek. Help?

This site has the Greek version, but their server seems to be down. Here is the direct link.

If you can't get Perseus (ifranzen's link) to work, try here or here (Greek with facing English translation).

From Urban Hermit's link:

WD.694 μέτρα φυλάσσεσθαι: καιρὸς δ' ἐπὶ [2πᾶσιν ἄριστος.2]
WD.694 Keep measure in all things, always observe due proportion.

the same line, a little better looking, from Perseus:

μέτρα φυλάσσεσθαι· καιρὸς δ᾽ ἐπὶ πᾶσιν ἄριστος.
