    The claimed quote is:

    Or this longer version:

    However this quote does not appear in the book (although parts are taken from the book), so where is it from?

    It's actually from the film Fahrenheit 9/11, where Michael Moore says:

    Did George Orwell once write that? No, not really, this short quote is actually a contracted version of a quote from the movie 1984,

    So what's actually in the book? Well, it's a lot longer, basically the quote from the movies a greatly reduced paraphrasing of all of the reading Chapter III, War is Peace, from "The Book" (THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF
    OLIGARCHICAL COLLECTIVISM by Emmanuel Goldstein), which happens in Chapter 9 of 1984

    I've highlighted the parts from which the movie quote is made:
