Add two lines in a single string

Dear All,

I want to add two lines in single string.

String1: God Bless You.
String2: Thank You.

Now i want to store these two above lines into a single string(str) and when i will echo it, it should be like
> echo $str
God Bless You.
Thank You.

Please help me.
Thanks in advance...

Separate them with a \n character.


And echo them:
echo $string

In Linux you may need to use the -e flag:

echo -e $string
