coding style - Single quotes vs. double quotes in Python - Stack Overflow
I like to use double quotes around strings that are used for interpolation or that are natural language messages, and single quotes for small symbol-like strings, but will break the rules if the strings contain quotes, or if I forget. I use triple double quotes for docstrings and raw string literals for regular expressions even if they aren't needed.

xorg - how to type “smart quotes” (U+201C, U+201D) - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange |

With a Compose key:

Compose , " → „
Compose < " → “
Compose > " → ”
Compose < ' → ‘
Compose > ' → ’

You can enter the last two characters in either order, at least in most locales. There may be locales where it only works in the order Compose < " works or only in the order Compose " <.

If you need to press Shift or AltGr to enter some of these characters, you'll need to hold those modifiers down as usual. You can press and release Compose before the subsequent characters, or you can press Compose and keep it down, as you prefer.

Most keyboards don't have a key marked “Compose”, but you can configure one and your environment may already have one configured. On a PC, a popular choice is the “Menu” key between the right Windows key and the right Ctrl key. The keyboard settings of most desktop environment include an option to make this key or some other key a Compose key.

Bruce Lee quotes |
“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

Does life seem nasty, brutish and short
Come on up to the house
The seas are stormy and you can't find no port
Got to come on up to the house, yeah

Nasty, brutish and short - meaning and origin.
Whatsoever therefore is consequent to a time of Warre, where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them withall. In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain; and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man, solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short."

Charles Darwin Quotes (Author of The Origin of Species) []
There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.

We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities... still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.
