Damn the torpedoes — Universal Principles

Damn the torpedoes

David Farragut was an officer of the United States Navy during the American Civil War, who was facing a gulf full of naval mines (called torpedoes at the time). When one ship hit a mine and started sinking, he ordered:

Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

Every ship, except for the first that hit a mine, got through the gulf and reached their destination.
