Who Wrote Enjoy The Little Things....?


I am disappointed to report that as of today (Aug 4, 2017), the Google hits on ["Enjoy the little things" "Vonnegut"] are about 452,000, while the hits on ["Enjoy the little things" "Brault"] are about 373,000.  This reflects a sharp increase in the erroneous crediting of my signature quote to Kurt Vonnegut. 

And so the prediction I made in 2009, when the hits were 425,000 Brault and 30,000 Vonnegut is coming true -- that one day the quote would be overwhelmingly credited to Vonnegut.

For the record, I wrote the quote for National Enquirer in 1985. It was reprinted by Reader’s Digest in its September 1986 issue, page 139, "Quotable Quotes" (see below). Between 1986 and 2009, it was quoted in many anthologies, most visibly in the popular “Book of Positive Quotations”, Fairview Press, 1997.  In every instance, the quote was credited to me.  Until 2009, I never saw it credited to anyone else.

I would ask those who are attributing this quote to Kurt Vonnegut to please do your little bit to correct the error.  Thank you.
