Dorothy Parker on Keats

Saw this great quote online about Keats a few days ago:

"Being in a garret doesn’t do you any good unless you’re some sort of Keats." -DOROTHY PARKER
"Why should we be owls, when we can be Eagles?" (Keats to Reynolds, 3 February 1818)

Some reference to Thomas Chatterton, you think??
"But if you will fully love me, though there may be some fire, 'twill not be more than we can bear when moistened and bedewed with Pleasures." JK to FB 08.07.1819
