A Mr Headstone quote? I suppose he *did* have too many feelings,

One that comes instantly to mind is Carton's "For you, and for any dear to you, I would do anything." Perhaps harder to appreciate in this day and age, when people say stuff like that all the time. I still like it.

“Mine ain’t a selfish affection, you know,” said Mr. Toots, in the confidence engendered by his having been a witness of the Captain’s tenderness. “It’s the sort of thing with me, Captain Gills, that if I could be run over–or–or trampled upon–or–or thrown off a very high place–or anything of that sort–for Miss Dombey’s sake, it would be the most delightful thing that could happen to me.”
