A better way to handle multiline strings in python

I'm a PEP8 fanatic, which means my code always follows the style guidelines. I've got both yapf and flake8 configured, and they can make my life a living hell if I try to fight them.

One of the guidelines that annoy me the most is the Maximum Line Length guideline. I can follow it most of the time, but when I have a REALLY long string, I just can't.

The following example violations the < 80 characters rule:

text = "We hereby declare the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz-Israel, to be known as the State of Israel."
print(text)

A quick fix would be to break the text to multiple lines and add \. Not the prettiest solution, but there's no other way, right?

text = "We hereby declare the establishment " \
"of a Jewish state in Eretz-Israel, " \
"to be known as the State of Israel."
print(text)

I just found out that breaking the text and adding parenthesis has the same effect:

text = ("We hereby declare the establishment "
"of a Jewish state in Eretz-Israel, "
"to be known as the State of Israel.")
print(text)

Not life changing, and I'm a bit embarrassed that it took me five years to figure this out. I believe some of you didn't know that either, so I'm taking one for the team :)
