Did Bobby Really Say That?

John Dorfman in an article titled, Four Stocks to Hold During Treacherous Times, ( posted this on Bloomberg today: "As chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer once said, nobody ever won a chess game by resigning."

Did Bobby ever say it? If not, to whom can it be attributed?

“No one ever won a game by resigning”
(Saviely Tartakower)

Not that this website is a much better source, but it supports what I already thought to be true. Ol' Tartakower said all the best chess quotes. (including “It's always better to sacrifice your opponent's men”
“To avoid losing a piece, many a person has lost the game”
