My favorite line is as follows:

Auguste Kerckhoffs
In cryptography, Kerckhoffs' law (also called Kerckhoffs' assumption,
axiom or principle) was stated by Auguste Kerckhoffs in the 19th
century: a cryptosystem should be secure even if everything about the
system, except the key, is public knowledge.
