I would like to write in a variable the following string :

Hello "World"

If I do cat("Hello ","\"World\""), I have the good result on the screen 
but it can not be affected to a variable. If I do the same thing with 
paste paste("Hello ","\"World\"") it does not work since \" seems to be 
not recognized. So what is the trick to do that.
