Some secular books have a hefty amount of wisdom that we find in our Torah sources. For example, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has a lot of almost verbatim lessons from Pirkei Avos, although the author is not basing himself on Torah sources.

I am assuming that these lessons in Jewish sources are considered Torah. Is that assumption incorrect, and if not, how does this fit with "תורה באומות"אם יאמר לך אדם… יש תורה בגוים אל תאמיןתאמן" ("If someone tells you… there's Torah among the nations, don't believe", Eicha Rabba parasha 2)?"
