"Therefore, it never occurred to me to become a pilot." (from The Red Baron by Manfred von Richtofen (p.63)

An interesting quote from the greatest fighter ace of the First World War. Of course in context it was early in the war, he was recently transferred from the cavalry to become an observer in a two-seater aircraft. At that point he felt that in the time it would take him to train to become a pilot the war would be over.
