Who Wrote Enjoy The Little Things....?


I am pleased to report that as of today (June 4, 2018), the Google hits on ["Enjoy the little things" "Vonnegut"] are down to 88,000, while the hits on ["Enjoy the little things" "Brault"] remain at about 110,000.  

So it looks like the trend toward crediting my quote to Mr. Vonnegut has been temporarily arrested.  I will take heart.

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, the quote appeared 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.
