What kind of database?

One possible way is to use the ASCII function of whatever database you are using.  In Oracle, you could do something like:

select chr(39)||'bob'||chr(39)
from dual;

You get the same result as:

select '''bob'''
from dual;

To be clear

insert into table1 values( 'test'||''''||'test', 1212,'hai');

All are single quotes...
