John Tenniel
Tenniel, who had started as a child prodigy, nearly ended as one. When a boy, fencing with his father, he lost the sight of of one eye. But the remaining one saw more than most.

Tenniel raised the political cartoon to a new level of dignity and importance.
John Tenniel quotes
How true it is that some have greatness thrust upon them! - and you may be quite sure that it was none of my seeking.
John Tenniel
Mr. Tenniel is the only artist, who has drawn for me, who resolutely refused to use a model, and declared he has no more needed one than I should need a multiplication-table to work on a mathematical problem!
Tenniel John quotes
The nine Wise Words are full of wisdom, besides being decidedly funny.
Tenniel
