I'm not sure exactly what behaviour you want, but Python accepts
literal strings to be triple-quoted (i.e. delimited by """ pairs or
''' pairs), which allows you to freely use literal line feed and quote
characters inside that string.
\ "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" "I think so, Brain, but |
`\ pants with horizontal stripes make me look chubby." -- _Pinky |
_o__) and The Brain_ |
