using variables in other voids

I'm sure this will seem noobish but here goes:

As the title states, I want to be able to use variables from one void to another one.

class Application {
public static void main(String[] args)
public static void helloThere()
String hello = "Hi There!";

And when I compile that I get an error that hello cannot be resolved to a variable.

    Variables have a dimension called scope. Variables defined within a method have "method" scope, they are not visible outside the method.
    Declaring a class variable makes the variable available through out the class, ie.
    class Application {
    static String hello = "I'm a static class variable";
    public static void main(String[] args) . . .[/code]
