	Hi all,

	Is there a benefit to using single quotes instead of double in
	Are single quotes more literal?

I am a beginner myself, but I read somewhere recently that there is
actually a disadvantage to using single quotes instead of double quotes.
If you start a string with a a single quote, and the string contains an
apostrophe (example: 'Here's your milk.'), Python will see the
apostrophe as the end of the string ('Here' would be where it would stop
reading the string).
I am happy to be corrected if I am wrong or there is a better answer to
