    could you please help me to choose one from these two?

    I'd like to make a banner, could you please help me to choose one from these two quotes?
    But I don't know if the first one is correct...and if it is incorrect, could you please tell me why? and are these called "quote" in English?
    Below are the quotes:
    1. Everyone is a special one.
    2. Everyone is special ( or unique )
    Sorry for so many questions at one time, many thanks in advance.

    Both of these are fine:

    Everyone is special.
    Everyone is unique.

    [AmE - not a teacher]

    Depending on what you are trying to say, 1. could be many things.

    Everyone is a special person.
    Everyone is a special talent.
    Everyone is a special gift.
    Everyone is a special blessing.

    I would not use "one".
