reasons not to use google translate

(Shakespeare’s moving passage from Othello, translated back from Italian):

‘Shut down, shut down, a brief candle! Life is but a shadow that walks a mediocre actor who strut and size on the stage for the tempo of his party and then not hear below’

or who could forget that famous Oscar Wilde quote:

‘We are all in rigagnolo, but some of us lay down the stars’ ?
