We have striven to communicate from the dawn of time. It is necessary to get one's thoughts across to another in order for them to understand what you mean. It is easier to get those points across when there are representations of those ideas through pictures, be they abstract or refined.
We have used lines, dots, circles, etc to form images that represent ideas or sounds for aeons now. Many culture's letters are symbols as well in that the individual letters have meanings beyond their sounds. We just don't generally think of them that way.
