There are ways to create that type of password using "phases" you can remember. It should always be a nonsense phrase that is not related to any personal things about your life.
As most such sights require you to combine, numbers, symbols and also lower and upper case letters it can be tricky to create memorable ones.
But think about things such as this,,, some letters look a little bit like numbers, the shapes of symbols can create words in a phrase such as the asterix * is good for the word star. The ^ symbol looks like a tent and could represent that word in a phase or perhaps it is the word above or the word up. This symbol < can represent the word backwards (or past) and this one > the word foreward, go to, etc.
Be creative and have fun making unique and secure passwords using some symbology opportunities to help create easy to remember strings of sayings.
This technique was taught to me by my computer network and computer building teach at my local community college. It has certainly been a very useful lesson
Now you know how to do it for yourself. Make it a family activity game while camping to see who can make some really fun ones.
