There's at least eight ways to do this, depending on cable routing. If all your options are open (e.g., you have open walls and new construction), then my favorite is to run the cable this way:

Power -> 3-way switch => 4-way switch => 3-way switch -> light.

where "=>" is 14/3 cable and "->" is 14/2 cable. If you have constraints that would make this solution difficult, please provide more details of your project. If you've already run the cable and need connection information, provide details of how you ran the cable.
