XKCD #936: Short complex password, or long dictionary passphrase?XKCD #936: Short complex password, or long dictionary passphrase?

I've read that there is many solutions available to crack passwords.
Reading these tips, I can understand that :

  • a password like "I want to swin in the sea", even if long enough, is not a safe password because it can be cracked with a dictionary

  • a password like "az2+" is not safe because it's too short.

But, what about the following passwords :

  • I want to swin in the sea az2+
  • I want to swin in the sea +
  • I w+ant to swin in the sea

Are these safe passwords ?
