A view is what can be seen in a range of vision. View may also be used as a synonym of point of view in the first sense. View may also be used figuratively or with special significance—for example, to imply a scenic outlook or significant vantage point:
- The barrier Rhine hath flashed, through battle-smoke,
- On men who gaze heart-smitten by the view,
- As if all Germany had felt the shock!
- - from The Germans on the Heights of Hochheim (1816) by William Wordsworth

From the point of view of the lawful owner this gold is a gift; From the point of view of the burglar it is a theft. He must go and give it back. It is the same with our existence. We have stolen a little of Gods being to make it ours. God has made us a gift of it. But we have stolen it. We must return it.”
