secular quotations in Paul

This is not strictly speaking a B-Greek question, so feel free to reply
to me off list.

In Paul's speech at Athens as recorded in Acts, the apostle is portrayed as
expressly quoting one (if not two) "secular" sources. Is there anywhere
within the Pauline corpus anything similar. That is, does Paul expressly
quote (and not just allude to), say, Seneca or any other "pagan"
author? If so, where and whom?

Thans in advance,

Jeffrey Gibson
