In a paper of F.A.Muller — Sets, Classes and Categories — Solomon Feferman is cited:
I realise that workers in category-theory are so at home in their subject that they find it more natural to think in category-theoretic rather than set-theoretical terms, but I would liken this to not needing to hear once one has learned to compose music.
Colin McLarty in Learning from Questions on Categorical Foundations does mention this, too.
