In the Kamigata area they have a single  lunchbox they use for a day for flower viewing. Upon returning they throw them away trampling them underfoot.The end is important in all things. (Yamamoto Tsunetomo)
Even if one's head were to be suddenly cut off, he should be able to do one more action with certainty.

With martial valour if one becomes like a revengeful ghost and shows great determination ,though his head is cut off, he should not die.(Yamamoto Tsenetomo)

                                              The flower that would surrender its fragrance
                                               before my brushwood door
                                               Does so regardless.
                                               I, However, sit and stare
                                               How rueful, this world.
                                                                                       (Jien A monk of the Tendai sect. 1155-1225)
