GCHQ would make short work of this. And so will you when I add a hint that will give you the answer. The result is a four-word saying that's oh so true!

I'm sure you have, TabbyTom. My hints were suggesting the addition process, which results in figures for each three-figure group: 1, 12, 12, 8, 5, 9 ... etc.
Equating these to letters alphabetically gives the phrase:
"All heiresses are beautiful"
