Printing with or without strings

I’m on the beginner part of the Python 3 guide.

My instructions are to make the variable “to_you”, store a text and then print this text by using:

print(to_you)

I am also able to print it by using a string like this

print(str(to_you))

Whats the difference between printing using “str” and without it. And can you give me an example in which you need to implement the string function.

Thanks

the string representation of a string is itself

Ahh, thanks for the answer man
