    Re:
    "No one is perfect."
    Meaning:
    Nobody is perfect.
    That refers to people.

    Re:
    "None are perfect"
    Meaning:
    None of them are perfect.
    That, in my opinion, most likely refers to objects, or things rather than people.

    "None" can mean "no one", but it more often means "Not one" or "no part".
