Other questions about "Derive"

Q: Derive • Extract • Draw • Retrieve

I want to figure out how to operate properly with these words.

I have a situation, and my task is to extract the benefit from this situation.
In this meaning, does Extract = Derive, Draw, Retrieve ?

What the difference?

It needs to derive the maximum benefit from every last cent that it spends.
Questions: 1st - it needs; it spends; do we talk about the situation generally not about someone specific as she needs or he needs.. it needs = in general, like we just consider such a necessity (without attachment to a concrete person, it might be it needs for everyone)???
2st - "derive" appears as an "extract" here with the same idea, analogically, we could say - to draw or to retrieve ???
A: derive - you have some information/thing and from this you get/understand/calculate something else.
eg. the word 'грамматика' is derived from the Ancient Greek word 'γραμματική'

extract - you have something inside something else and you take it outside.
eg. the police extract information from the criminal. (the information is inside his head)
the poison was extracted from his wound.

draw is similar to extract - it is 'inside' something and you take it out.
eg. she was very sad but I managed to draw a smile from her.
he drew his last breath before dying.

retrieve - something is somewhere and you get it from that place
eg. I forgot my coat at my friend's house, and I went there the next day to retrieve it.
The computer was damaged, but I managed to retrieve the files I wanted.

Q: If I derive inspiration from your message including an interesting scene, I might draw it.
soa natural?
A: AHHHHH. Okay. The way you just phrased it in your explanation is the best way to say it.

My first sentence:
"..I derive inspiration from your message of an interesting scene.."
This means the inspiration came from the message, and the interesting scene is a product of the inspiration (which came from the message). So the interesting scene is of (from) the "inspiration from your message." The word "of" shows possesion. The "interesting scene's inspiration from your message" essentially means the same thing.

The second sentence:
This just means you're deriving both inspiration and an interesting scene from the message. Each are separately a product of the message.

All in all the sentences mean the same thing because the interesting scene and inspiration are both coming from the message in the end, but I admit the 1st one is a lot more complicated. It'd probably be best not to use it.

~If you need any more clarification, ask me.
