OQ #70

Googling spoils the fun. Don't be evil!

1. This is an 1834 caricature of 19th century French amateur artist Alfred d'Orsay (aka Count of Orsay). What did it inspire?


2. My model for business is The Beatles: They were four guys that kept each other's negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are not done by one person, they are done by a team of people.
Whose quote?

3. The Narrative of John Smith is a novel which tells the story of a 50-year-old "opinionated Everyman" confined to his room by gout, laying out his thoughts and views on subjects from religion to war and literature through the conversations he has with his visitors, from a retired army major to a curate.
Who wrote it, and why is it currently in the news?
