    Dear all
    What is the nearest English idiom to:
    هو شخص يتعامل مع الحياة بمبدأ (إن عشت اليوم فلن تعيش غداً)

    I ask because the string seems to come from English origin!; it is not sheer Arabic!!
    Thanks in advance​

    Can't think of a well known idiom in English.
    He's a person who goes thru life by the principle of: "if you lived today you won't tomorrow"

    Maybe it's an attempt at translating 'here today, gone tomorrow'.
