If I take it steady, I am only right once,

but if I'm wrong, I stay wrong.

If I stand still, I am right twice.

but if I go backwards, I am right four times.

Are you :

A clock?

If I'm steady, I am only right once

If you stay on the right time, you're always right

but if I'm wrong, I stay wrong.

If you're off, but working, you'll never have the right time

If I stand still, I am right twice.

A broken clock is right twice a day

but if I go backwards, I am right four times.

A clock running backwards is right four times a day

  • $\begingroup$ why is right once and always right the same? $\endgroup$ – Andrey Sep 6 '15 at 12:18
  • $\begingroup$ Because, @Andrey , that once is the present moment, and if the clock is right, it will ALWAYS be the present moment. Hence the clock will always be right once. Hope this helped. :) $\endgroup$ – Meet K. Sep 11 '15 at 6:37
