While this is true, Schroedinger's equation can be formulated solely based on symmetries, see, e.g.,

  scale invariance," Teoreticheskaya i Mathematicheskaya Fizika,
  1976, Vol. 26, No. 3, pp. 414-418 (in Russian); English
  translation: Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, 1976, Vol.
  8, No. 3, pp. 282-285.

There is no formulation of quantum mechanics entirely based on symmetries (although Weyl tried it since the beginnings of the theory
