'Might makes might' in Latin (Short story, details within)

Hi!

So I'm studying Creative Writing, and one of my final assignments this year is a short story; I decided mine would be about a Museum of Future History, containing artifacts that have been displaced in time and originating from many possible futures.

I wanted the Latin motto above the entrance to the museum to translate to 'Might makes might'; that is, the first 'might' as in the verb, referring to possibilities and things that could be, and the second 'might' as in the noun, referring to strength and power.

I'm not sure how one would go about translating that, or even if it's possible at all, but I'd be okay with a reasonable facsimile that translates to the same meaning, if not the exact words. Basically, I want a motto that talks to the power of possibilities, and I'm willing to sacrifice the play on words if necessary.

Thanks in advance!
