To correct Lincoln somewhat, he should have said, \x34. . . that government of the people, by the politicians, and for the politicians shall not perish from the earth.

Government's view of the economy: If it moves, tax it.  If it keeps moving, regulate it.  And if it stops moving, subsidize it.  — Ronald Reagan

In the United States, the majority undertakes to supply a multitude of ready-made opinions for the use of individuals, who are thus relieved from the necessity of forming opinions of their own.
-- Alexis de Toqueville

In October, Girls creator and star Lena Dunham sold a book to Random House for $3.7 million. Now, Gawker has obtained and published Dunham's 66-page proposal - complete with illustrations!

The book's structure is inspired by Helen Gurley Brown's Having It All and, judging by the proposal, it will allow readers the same deeply personal glimpse at Dunham that anyone who's seen her HBO comedy has become accustomed to.

Here are a few memorable quotes from Dunham's million-dollar proposal:

•"Every ice pop I ate, every movie I watched, every poem I wrote was tinged with a fearful loss."

•"I went to my first Women's Action Coalition meeting at age three."

•"Cassie was a very fat girl we knew who we had nicknamed fat Cassie because she also wasn't that nice."

Check out Dunham's full proposal here.

Does the book sound interesting to you?
