In his wake, he left the world with some memorable quotes on life:

1. "Christianity is a way of seeing all of life in reality through God's eyes. That's what Christianity is. It's a worldview; it's a system of thought and life."

2. "If we don't have a consistent ethic about the sanctity of human life, decisions will not be made on the basis of what care we need, but on what the government can afford."

3. "The church must adhere to and contend for the biblical teaching that all human beings are made in God's image, and that all life, at every stage, is precious in His sight. This truth must inform all of our ethical decisions."

4. In his book," God and Government: An Insider's View on the Boundaries Between Faith and Politics," Colson wrote about what makes a government just. "A government cannot be truly just without affirming the intrinsic value of human life."

5. In his blog, "The Daily Chuck," told of spending time with autistic grandson and how much it taught him about life. "I took people with a disability for granted and that I now realize that this they are the sentinels on the front lines of the defense of life in our culture."

6. Speaking during a Christian Broadcasting Network interview, Colson told of how prison changed his view on life. "I use to look at life from the top looking down, but from prison you look at life from the underside, and you see people hurting and suffering."

7. "I realized when God got a hand on my life that there's no turning back."
