It's a quote that Daniel Grotta wrote quoting Tolkien in his 1976 book: J.R.R. Tolkien: Architect of Middle-earth. This was the first Tolkien biography written.

http://www.grotta.net/blog.htm?post=899042 On his web site, Daniel Grotta writes his perspective on writing it. There is some interesting background info on how he got the quotes & information to write the book. Doesn't seem like the Tolkien estate was/is on board with it.

I know that doesn't answer if the quote is indeed from Tolkien or not, but it's somewhere to start.

"Why, to think of it, we're in the same tale still! It's going on. Don't the great tales never end?" -Samwise
