Then there are the Beatles:

"And in the end...and in the end,
the love you take is equal to the love you make."

Cheers,

        Just reminded of Coleridge's famous lines from 'Dejection: An Ode':

         "O Lady! we receive but what we give,
          And in our life alone does Nature live:
          Ours is her wedding-garment, ours her shroud!"

                          Indeed!  "Lilac and star and bird" -- "the fragrant pines, and the cedars dusk and dim".

                          Thank you, Peter.

                                "now that the jasmine is blooming / and the air is stilled by woodsmoke"
