White in the Eye

It is said that the devil has no white in his eyes, and hence the French locution, “Celui qui n`a point de blanc en l'oeil. ” “Do you see any white in my eye?” is asked by one who means to insinuate he is no fool or no knave- that is, he is not like the devil with no white in the eye.
