   Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations.  1989.
 
 
NUMBER:1914
AUTHOR:Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill (1874–1965)
QUOTATION:To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war.
ATTRIBUTION:WINSTON CHURCHILL, remarks at a White House luncheon, June 26, 1954. His exact words are not known, because the meetings and the luncheon that day were closed to reporters, but above is the commonly cited version.

  His words are quoted as “It is ‘better to jaw-jaw than to war-war,’” in the sub-heading on p. 1 of The New York Times, June 27, 1954, and as “To jaw-jaw always is better than to war-war” on p. 3.

  The Washington Post in its June 27 issue, p. 1, has “better to talk jaw to jaw than have war,” and The Star, Washington, D.C., p. 1, a slight variation, “It is better to talk jaw to jaw than to have war.”
SUBJECTS:War
