No idea what the quote was any longer, but the lowest solve rate on any I have done is in the neighborhood of three percent. I've solved a bunch under 10% though.

I just found this beast:

"They lard their lean books with the fat of others' works."
- Robert Burton
Success rate: 6.8%
Average time: 114 seconds
Record time: 27 seconds (gryhnd51)


Edit: And here's another. This one has an even lower success rate, although the language is not as obscure:

"My cat speaks sign language with her tail."
- Robert A. Stern
Success rate: 5.9%
Average time: 157 seconds
Record time: 20 seconds (rotorguru)
