True, but for myself I still do not use the "Generate a random password for me" feature of Password Safe, and most other password managers have that function, too.  I actually use what I call the "Portmanteau Method," which is a slightly more elaborate variant on what Angel suggested.  I have a set prefix and suffix that I use surrounding something I am likely to remember for the site in question.  Since I occasionally don't remember, or forget whether I capitalized or not (and where), I always enter my self-generated passwords into Password Safe so I can verify them if I forget them.

I am also a contrarian when it comes to passwords in general.  Although I now have different ones for the vast majority of websites since I've been converting to the portmanteau password formula over the last several years, for many decades I had 5 passwords that I used exclusively.  If I somehow forgot which one I'd used I could keep guessing and typically be within the number of attempts you get to make before an account is locked.  

The real problem with password security is not having too few, or using one, but that people write them down and/or share them and the second you record them in a manner that is insecure your risk shoots up and if you share your password and don't change it then it shoots up even more.  I have 2 passwords I've been using since the and I've never told anyone either one of them.  None of the accounts I've used them on have ever been compromised, either.

The nice thing is that many password managers, in addition to having password generation, also have automatic fill-in if you supply the site as part of the data you enter.  You can then use a keyboard sequence to say, take me to the website and enter the username and password of record for that site.  Depending on how the site works this is not always 100% successful (think pop-up dialogs) but for conventional edit boxes it's mighty darned close.

Another suggestion, which has worked for me over the years, regarding pass words.  It is particularly useful, as older people using these pass word generators might suffer memory problems, as does my elder sister.  Who now has to have her son assist her with the simplest of  being able to access sites.  Which require the use of pass words.  I use a single pass word for all my accessing.  With different prefixes or suffixes.  Particular to the site which I wish to access.  So, should one discover my pass word, it would be most difficult to determine the individual prefix or suffix I have chosen for that site.  If this list required a pass word, for example, I might use my individual pass word, plus the suffix MJfwDS.  The first part being the initials of the list itself, the DS being the initials of the first owner of the officially endorsed list by Freedom Scientific, Debbie Scales.  Who would figure that one out?  Yet, it would be something I would easily remember.  As Debbie Scales performed, for we blind Jaws users, such a fine service.  Seeking and discovering all sorts of free to use programs.  Which were accessible for us blind individuals to utilize.  To make our lives easier.  So we wouldn't have to find them ourselves.

Password Safe.  Open Source, Free, entirely accessible (unless they've changed something, and the UI is still "old-style" Windows.  There is also an iOS and Android port and you can store your actual encrypted password safe on any of several cloud services so that all instances of Password Safe or its ports that you use will be looking at the same source safe.
