Do You Know Robert Brault?

A good point, Bob, and a timely one!

Becky Povich is hosting a blog hop and giveaway to introduce readers who are not already aware of him to our friend, Robert Brault, a famed freelance writer (and quote-master) whose name isn't nearly as well known as it ought to be.

For instance, did you know it was he who coined the phrase, Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things?

Enough said! If you love a good wordsmith, then I suggest you head on over and check out his marvelous blog, where pithy thinking is the order of the day.

Typical of his political acumen and humor is this quote that he posted recently:

Overheard in a Washington D.C. church confessional: "Bless me Father, for sins have been committed."

Ya gotta love it, right? Talk about nailing political-speak and lack of accountability on the head. Nobody does it better.

=)

PS. If you're looking for lovely but reasonably-priced Christmas gifts, Robert has a calendar out this season, and the price is right. For the letter-writing crowd, he also has note cards. As a matter of fact, Becky will be giving away a calendar or set of note cards to the lucky winner of her blog hop drawing. So head on over and check it out, okay?

And just in case you've got nothing better to do than win a handmade quilt, don't forget to comment here so you can take part in my 1000th-post contest! Winners will be announced on Thursday.

a blog hop is a great idea for getting people to find worthy blogs.

I love the ingratitude quote.

Hi Sue! Thanks so much for helping me promote the Awesome Mr. Brault! One of my commenters referred to it as: Braultize the world!
Isn't that great?!

Eva Gallant said...

Going to check out his blog now!

Sue said...

You'll be glad you did, Eva. He's got more good quotes than Eli Lilly has pills. (Had to change that old saying from "Carter" because that company isn't so well known for that now...)

;)

Wow!

I love this quote. Some people are just wordsmiths, aren't they?

Robert Brault said...
