Anything <for> a bit of warm-heartedness


Senior Member
Here are some words from the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover(page 304, chapter 14) by Lawrence (planetebook,here):
(background: Mellors told Connie that he believe he believed in being warmhearted, especially being warm-hearted in love, in f u c king with a warm heart. Then he continued)

‘It’s a fact!’ he said. ‘Anything for a bit of warm-heartedness. But the women don’t like it. Even you don’t really like it. ……’
I understand the sentence to be: anything needs(=for/calls for) a bit of warm-heartedness.

Is that right please?
