La dernière:

„Heimisch in der Welt wird man nur durch Arbeit; wer nicht arbeitet, ist heimatlos.“ (Auerbach)

Mais là, je ne suis pas du tout sûre qu'il y ait une traduction, donc si quelqu'un ose se lancer dans une traduction...!

Merci d'avance!

d'accord avec "enraciné" pour heimisch.
je propose "sans patrie" pour heimatlos, voir le lien vers un article de libération sur la minorité russe en Estonie, qualifiée de "sans patrie".
