Your perspective affects your response

From Dan Galvin's Thought For The Day mailing list:

If you don't like someone, the way he holds his spoon makes you furious; if you like him, he can turn his plate over into your lap and you won't mind.
-Irving Becker

Anyone know who Irving Becker is?

There is an Irving M Becker who wrote Guide to Personal Happiness. Could that be him? It seems to be something one of the 80's happiness books might say.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll see if I can confirm that it is the same Irving Becker.
