It's hard for a common man to believe that something on the cloud could be safer than something in their personal possession. To me, that's the main reason why password managers haven't managed to enter the mainstream despite being around for over a decade. My personal recommendation: Select passwords in a foreign language in which you're not very conversant. Such passwords are known to be very secure, as I'd highlighted here. You're unlikely to have difficulties remembering them since you anyway know only a few words in that language. What's more, others don't know which are the few words you know in a foreign language and won't be able to figure them out even if they shoulder-surf you as you're entering them on your keyboard.

That said, many people do feel safe about keeping gold and other valuables in a bank vault / locker than inside their own homes. By the same token, they might feel comfortable about storing their master passwords in eLockers offered by some banks (e.g. Wells Fargo, ICICI).
