Can anyone tell me what this quote means?

Question:Can anyone tell me what this quote means? “The different accidents of life are not so changeable as the feelings of human nature. I had worked hard for nearly two years, for the sole purpose of infusing life into an inanimate body…[b]ut now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished….” (56)

What it means is that the accidents which occur within the world are very much the same everytime they happen. If you look case by case at the tragic things which happen they all pretty much the same especially on paper, what the big difference, the most important difference is how people react to those accidents. Some people take it better than others. Some become obessed from losing someone in a car accident, others are inspired to live everyday to its fullest. Human reaction cannot be predicted very accurately for any occurence because people are so different, events are not.
I think it's saying that compared with what happens in the course of events, it is our feelings that change more dramatically.
