You can't run from your past. You will end up running in circles. Until you fall back down into the same hole you were trying to escape from, only the hole's grown deeper.PastMax Payne - 2, by Max Payne

When you're waking up, the world is a blur. What was clear in a dream, suddenly makes no sense. No surreal rescues. No easy, magic way out. But you are awake.Dreaming, SleepingMax Payne - 2, by Max Payne
Closing your eyes forces you to look at the darkness inside.
I hadn't slept in a long time. When I did, my dreams were nightmares.
In a nightmare, every choice you make, is a wrong one.
I would wake up at night, afraid that day was a dream I'd forget.
There are no choices. Nothing but a straight line.
The Illusion comes afterwards, when you ask 'Why me?' and 'What if?'
When you look back, see the branches, like a pruned bonsai tree, or a forked lightening.
If you had done something differently, it wouldn't be you.
It would be someone else looking back, asking a different set of questions.
I started to wonder if my luck was about to run out, when I realized, it had a long time ago.Max Payne - 2, by Max Payne

Death is inevitable. Our fear of it makes us play save, blocks out emotion.
It's a losing game, without passion, you're already dead.

There was a blind spot in my head, a bullet-shaped hole where the answers should be. Call it denial. I wanted to dig inside my skull and scrape out the pain.Max Payne - 2, by Max Payne

When the darkness fell, New York City became something else, any old Sinatra song notwithstanding. Bad things happened in the night, on the streets of that other city. Noir York City.New York CityMax Payne - 2
