Great lines: Gertrude The Countess of Groan (Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake)

Quotes from films, plays and books

‘There is nowhere else, you will only tread in a circle, Titus Groan. There’s not a road, not a track, but it will lead you home. For everything comes to Gormenghast.’

This is the warning Gertrude Groan, 76th Countess of Groan gives to her son Titus as he is about to leave home at the end of the second novel.
