Ramana Maharshi
Does a man who is acting on the stage in a female part forget that he is a man? Similarly, we too must play our parts on the stage of life, but we must not identify ourselves with those parts.
Ramana Maharshi, Be As You Are: The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi

As fire, though one, takes the shape of every object which it consumes, so the Self, though one, takes the shape of every object in which it dwells. (The Upanishads: Breath of the Eternal, pg. 35)
Prabhavananda, The Upanishads: Translations from the Sanskrit
