Dear Experts

I am starting with mySQL and I cannot understand all the concept of escape characters in strings.

What was idea behind this? I have feeling that it makes my life just more difficult if I want to assure that string which I have in variable is indeed stored in mySQL in exact form.

Many thanks for your advices
