Dear Author:

Thank you so much for sending the xxxxx Literary Agency your query. We’d like to apologize for the impersonal nature of this standard rejection letter. Rest assured that we do read every query letter carefully and, unfortunately, this project is not right for us.  Because this business is so subjective and opinions vary widely, we recommend that you pursue other agents. After all, it just takes one “yes” to find the right match.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

This line is pretty funny “We’d like to apologize for the impersonal nature of this standard rejection letter'” because it’s followed up with “…it just takes one “yes” to find the right match.” Well at least they have sense of humor.
