My favorite line from his rejection letter ...

"Publishing is a tough business, and the response of any individual agent—or indeed dozens of agents—is not necessarily a comment on the inherent value of the project."

Does the fact that this lifted my spirits mean that querying is wearing me down ... ?

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work. We've read your material, and I'm sorry to say that we don't think it is right for the specific talents of the people working at our company at this time.
Publishing is a tough business, and the response of any individual agent—or indeed dozens of agents—is not necessarily a comment on the inherent value of the project. Every agent has individual tastes and individual business requirements. We wish you the best of luck in finding the right path to publication.
