Chuck Colson was once famous for being part of the "Watergate Seven." He served his time in prison for being involved in the scandal but converted to Christianity before the trial even began.

As a Christian evangelical, he helped many prisoners when in jail and founded the Prison Fellowship upon leaving. The organization grew to be one of the biggest prison advocacy groups in the United States.

For his involvement in Christian organizations, Colson received honorary doctorates and prestigious prizes. All monies he received he donated to the charitable groups he worked with so as to carry on the work they were doing.

Colson was also invested in family life, considering it sacred. Here are some memorable quotes on family from Colson:

1. In a Breakpoint commentary piece, Colson warned about not caring for family. "If we don't take care of our own family, we're acting sinfully."

2. "It seems to me that before we turn to the government, we need to do everything in our power to meet our own personal and family needs."

3. "We ought to start talking about our responsibility to the family so that we really take care of our relatives in need rather than just dumping them on Uncle Sam's doorstep."

4. In his blog, Colson told of his mother caring for his grandmother, which she did without a second thought. "The whole point was that we never considered this a sacrifice – this is what you did for your immediate family, and to some degree your extended family."

5. "Our job is to clean up our own house and rebuild the culture of marriage in the church and to display healthy marriages as a witness to the world."

6. "Another question is whether we are making an adequate, affirmative case for traditional marriage? If we do that, we're going to win this thing, because it is good for society, as every society in human history has found."
