Is there any equivelent expression?

Posted by Iulian on July 09, 2003

Hi everybody. I have a question if you could help me with. In my native language there is an expression which can be translated in "word by word" way, like "from today to tommorow".

This is used, for instance, when someone wants to express that he barely has enough to make a living and it is like "he lives from today to tommorow".
Another usage would be when expressing that nothing can be steadily learnt too easy or too fast, so it is used like "nothing can be learnt from today to tommorow".

Hoping that I managed to make myself clear, I would appreciate if anybody tell me some similar English expressions, and I mean some well-known sayings.
Thanks in advance!
