I heard this a while ago, and absolutely love it. So I made a little poster.

Nice phrase Dan. The background seems to interfere with the type though. There doesn't seem to be enough contrast between the two.
Agree with @Anthony Killeen on this, phrase is brilliant but the background seems a little too much. Would be great to see it on some alternative backgrounds :)
I think you could do better than this if you put your mind to it.
I don't like the frase that much, that's my POV.
Love it! Maybe overlaying the background with a solid color will make the type pop? I like the tall trees!
Also the line spacing could do with a bit of tweaking. Such as around 'BIG', there's more line space underneath than on top. I generally try and space all the lines out the same with this kind of design.
I have to agree with @Daryl Ginn I'm afraid.
I don't think the background works. I'm not saying it has to be related to the phrase per se, but the composition of the image isn't great and neither are the colours. The most obvious example to cite would be Luke Beard's "Don't Be a Dick" poster: the background is incredible. Built over that are some great typographic elements, but the background speaks volumes on it's own.
Speaking of typography, I think you could afford to be a little more adventurous with it. If you are stuck on using one typeface, try and bring some variety in with different weights maybe.
Not keen on the drop shadow dude.. Cool phrase though!
