The syntax rules in Emacs Lisp allow to quote a linebreak so that it
doesn't get part of the string, and that allows to write strings like this:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(message "\
A string
of multiple lines.")

When I want to use a string literal I prefer that.  All string lines are
indended equally, and Emacs-Lisp mode knows how to handle that,
i.e. indentation commands won't mess it up.  And you don't get overlong
lines with this method.
