Quote by Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach: “Even a stopped clock is right twice a day”
English Tutor Nick P Proverbs (91) Even a Broken Clock is Right Twice a Day
“Even a stopped clock is right twice a day”
As long as you are not trying to refer to a digital clock, then yes, even a broken clock is right twice a day. That is simply because every day experiences the same hour twice, once in the morning AM and once in the afternoon and night PM. If a clock is broke at , it is twice a day, which makes the broken clock correct twice a day. At its most literal level, a broken clock is certainly right at twice a day as long as it is not a digital clock, and as long is it is stopped rather than slowed. If it is a conventional numerical clock with twelve hours on the face, then it will be right twice a day. Yes, even a broken clock is right twice a day, because there will always be a time that equals the time on the clock.
At times yes
A person who is considered to be unreliable can still be right about something every once in a while, even if it is by accident. - This used to be correct.
