Motto of recruits in the military everywhere, but especially those in the Bill the Galactic Hero books by Harry Harrison. A typical conversation on the first day of boot camp went something like this:

Drill Sergeant: Okay! Who knows how to drive a speeder?
Recruit: Uh, I suppose I do, sir.
Drill Sergeant: GOOD! Go wash the latrines!

Thusly, Never Volunteer.
