I'm in China. I'm finding "Unjust Discourse" from The Clouds of Aristophanes , and get to this site.I just need Greek text of it.Anyone who can help me, Thanks a lot!

Actually,I just need this text:

" If you devote yourself to practising my precepts, your chest will be
stout, your colour glowing, your shoulders broad, your tongue short, your hips muscular, but your tool small. But if you follow the fashions of the day, you will be pallid in hue, have narrow shoulders, a narrow chest, a long tongue, small hips and a big thing; you will know how to spin forth long-winded arguments on law. "

Hi; Here is the passage you are looking for (Clouds 1009-1019)

ἢν ταῦτα ποιῇς ἁγὼ φράζω καὶ πρὸς τούτοις προσέχῃς τὸν νοῦν ἕξεις αἰεὶ στῆθος λιπαρόν͵ χροιὰν λαμπράν͵ ὤμους μεγάλους͵ γλῶτταν βαιάν͵ πυγὴν μεγάλην͵ πόσθην μικράν· ἢν δ΄ ἅπερ οἱ νῦν ἐπιτηδεύῃς͵ πρῶτα μὲν ἕξεις χροιὰν ὠχράν͵ ὤμους μικρούς͵ στῆθος λεπτόν͵ γλῶτταν μεγάλην͵ κωλῆν μικράν͵ ψήφισμα μακρόν...

Best wishes
