It was Pascal, and it is something close to "man's unhappiness arises
from being unable to sit still in a room alone."  I've also heard it to
the effect that "all evil arises from man being unable etc.."

   Pascal said that, but I am not sure where, or whether that is the
exact quotation.  It might be in the Pensees.
