For the time being vs. "for now"?
Consider the following passages:> A litter made of two rifles and two field jackets would suffice **for now**. That was good news; another bit was that the EPW was a lieutenant, a regimental REMF attached to a battalion quartered in town. *--Rangers Lead the Way By Thomas H. Taylor, Robert J. Martin*> He had a couple of thousand dollars on him that would suffice **for the time being**, until he could find some kind of legal employment. He got out ofthe car, and walked a block. *--The Maze By Kahn Morris*Now, how are these expressions different? Could we use them interchangeably? Oxford Dictionary of English has the following definitions for them,> **for now** until a later time: that's all the news there is for now; > **for the time being** for the present; until some other arrangement is made.
