Devil’s advocate

Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.

The Devil is in the details.

Give the devil his due (We should admit the good qualities of even a bad or undeserving person.) [Ref: William Shakespeare, Henry IV, Part I]

“It’s important to face down your demons.” — Stephan Jenkins
