Icon vs Text

When use Icons? When use Text?

[1] As rule of thumb, icons alone should only be permitted when at least two out of the following three conditions apply:
  1. Space is very limited (i.e., too small for text alone).
  2. The icons are standardized (e.g., the floppy disk image for save)
  3. The icon represents an object with a strong physical analog or a visual attribute (e.g., a printer icon to access printer attributes, or a red rectangle to set a page background red).
