Default p114, confusion over text.

Good evening,

I was wondering if someone could clarify the following text for me.

"Now ask yourself this question: What kind of data type is the Text property? Well, if the Text
property is storing textual data, the data must be stored in a string data type. Because the Text property
of a textbox object is a string variable, it also means the Text property is a string object ."

i understand its storing data in the type string. its the section after, especially the section stating its a string variable and why that means its a string object that i dont understand.

sorry if this seems like a stupid question but im genuinely confused so i would appreciate it if someone could elaborate on the above or point me to an earlier section in the book where i seem to have missed what was being explained.

Thanks for your time
