    I beleive that "qu'hier que demain" is inspired by the poem from Rosemonde Gerard, called "Les Vieux;" Typically the phrase is "qu'hier moins que demain" and basically references l'amour; thus, I love you more tomorrow than yesterday.

    De rien!

    Et bien, la phrase de la poeme:

    <<Et, comme chaque jour je t'aime davantage, Aujourd'hui plus qu'hier et bien moins que demain...>>

    "And because I love you more and more each day, today more than yesterday but less than tomorrow."

    I agree with Globug.
    I think my father has such a thing with "moins" and "plus" written in "mathematical" symbols:
    "+ qu'hier et - que demain"
    "more than yesterday and less than tomorrow"
