: : 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!
: : Regards
