Letters

You're looking at us right now.

I'm reading

Like atoms, we are indivisible.

Letters are a union of lines, taken alone they're not letters any more.

We are the bane of a young child's existence.

Referred to the struggle of children while learning to write

However, we are not always seen together.

There are a lot of cases where letters alone have meaning

Some of these people here are extremely fast in answering correctly, which took me by surprise on more than one occasion. $\endgroup$ – Kevin Cruijssen Apr 5 '16 at 8:27
