Orthodox here, I don't like to comment personally on this issue as it just becomes a saint quote war as well as Bible extracts that could be interpreted one way or another. It breeds a need to be correct that distracts from the humility we aspire to as followers of Christ.

A short and simple answer is that we don't believe in the Filioque due to our belief in the Monarchy of the Father model of the Trinity, which is the context in which the Creed of Nicaea is born (Ever wonder why we say "I believe in One God the Father Almighty"?)
This is further elaborated on by the Cappadocian Fathers, whom the Orthodox place great emphasis on.

These quotes are you pointed to are usually explained by quotes similar to pic related. They are either misunderstandings or a case in which a saint may have been mistaken.
Christ and the Holy Spirit are said to be the two hands of the Father, some theologians even go so far as to say they are inseparable though distinguishable.

Here's one of many articles that hopefully can explain this point of view:
