If you are in need of some (older) German literary, scientific or whatsoever text try this one: .

From their wiki: " ist eine umfassende Bibliothek lexikalischer, wissenschaftlicher und literarischer Texte in deutscher Sprache. Dabei stehen alle Texte in Volltext und sehr viele Texte zudem als Faksimiles zur Verfügung."
( )

They're calling themselves "die größte deutschsprachige Volltextbibliothek" and at the moment they have gathered 1,038,814 articles, among them 25,762 proverbs (some of them with translations), 180,363 citations and definitions from (mostly Greek and Latin) dictionaries and 118,691 pictures...

As it is a private project and costs a lot of money they're thinking about some sort of subscription fee but for now it can be used free of charge.
