Why do you think Snoopy was not the original writer?
It was first written by Edward Bulwer-Lytton as the beginning of his 1830 novel Paul Clifford.

With a sentence as simple and common as this, how can anyone know when it was first used?
It is the first line of the book, Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'engle. But I doubt she was the first to use it.
