Here is a simple algorithm to create a password from phrases you like.
  1. Choose one or several sentences (quotes, sentences in a book...)
  2. Extract the first letter of each word
  3. Alternate case
  4. Add the number of characters of the first and last word.
Example:
"Password is a pain to remember"
=> "piaptr"
=> "pIaPtR"
=> "pIaPtR88"

To make your password secure you need to make it different for each website/account. You can for example add the first and last character of the website name.

    If the algorithm you choose is strong enough, your brain should be more secure than any software.
