Anecdote o' the day

Found in John Julius Norwich's 'More Christmas Crackers', and worthy of recycling:

"Edward Marsh records in his book of reminiscences, 'A Number of People', a remark of Bertrand Russell's 'when in a disquisition on the capacity of mankind for misery he said he had never been so unhappy that he would not have been cheered, in an appreciable measure, by the sudden offer of a chocolate cream'".  

My preference would be certain types of fruit or bar snack, but the point stands.
