That is a paraphrase of what he actually said about the mines blocking Mobile Bay which was: "Damn the torpedoes! Four bells. Captain Drayton, go ahead! Jouett, full speed!"

“I wish to Heaven I was married," she said resentfully as she attacked the yams with loathing. "I'm tired of everlastingly being unnatural and never doing anything I want to do. I'm tired of acting like I don't eat more than a bird, and walking when I want to run and saying I feel faint after a waltz, when I could dance for two days and never get tired. I'm tired of saying, 'How wonderful you are!' to fool men who haven't got one-half the sense I've got, and I'm tired of pretending I don't know anything, so men can tell me things and feel important while they're doing it... I can't eat another bite.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind
