Echo constants in batch scripts without quotes

Somewhat based on this Stack Overflow post, I wanted to simplify the code to echo a constrant string without the quotation marks to the console in a Windows batch script., Here’s the script to output the obligatory, “Hello world!” text

@echo OFF
SET variable="Hello World!"
ECHO %variable:"=%

With the following output

Hello World!
