In this article we consider the general problem of translating definitions and results from the category of discrete-time dynamical systems to the category of flows. We consider the dynamics of homeomorphisms and flows on compact metric spaces, in particular Peano continua. As a translating tool, we construct continuous, symmetric and monotonous fields of local cross sections for an arbitrary flow without singular points. Next, we use this structure in the study of expansive flows on Peano continua. We show that expansive flows have not stable points and that every point contains a non-trivial continuum in its stable set. As a corollary we obtain that no Peano continuum with an open set homeomorphic to the plane admits an expansive flow. In particular, compact surfaces do not admit expansive flows without singular points.
