Here's a weird one...

It reads the same top-to-bottom, bottom-to-top, left-to-right, and right-to-left.

The translation is vague but some believe it can be translated as:

As ye sow so shall ye reap.

Others translate it as:

The farmer uses his plough as his form of work.

But the one I like is:

God holds the plough, but you turn the furrows (http://www.funtrivia.com/askft/Question65359.html)

One can write the word "pater noster" twice which can be written as a cross intersecting at the "n" in noster
and leaves the letters "a" x 2 and "o" x 2.

Pater Noster from Latin is Our Father and the "a" and "o" is alpha and omega; the beginning and the end.

A very literal translation would be: "The farmer Arepo has the wheel of the work".

It is often used in 'love magic' there are even examples in runic script. The square being put in a bowl and then the glaze hiding it so that the intended target eats from the bowl with the secret sator square.
