  The Complete Quadrilateral
The mathematical object that goes by the name of complete quadrilateral is neither complete nor quadrilateral, at least not in the sense in which the word "quadrilateral" appears in, say, Brahmagupta's theorem about cyclic quadrilaterals.
A complete quadrilateral is a configuration of four straight lines in general position and six points at which the lines intersect.
First of all, we have the Theorem of Complete Quadrilateral: the midpoints of the three diagonals are collinear.

 Quadrilateral - LoveToKnow 1911
QUADRILATERAL, in geometry, a figure enclosed by four straight lines.
But the most famous quadrilateral was that of the four fortified towns of north Italy - Mantua, Peschiera, Verona, and Legnago, FIG.
The real value of the quadrilateral, which gave Austria such a firm hold on Lombardy, lay in the great natural strength of Mantua and in the readiness with which troops and supplies could be poured into Verona from the north.

The length of the two diagonals of a cyclic quadrilateral are related to the four sides in Ptolemy's Theorem which states (using m and n for the diagonals lengths) mn=ac+bd.
The center of this "orthic cyclic quadrilateral" is the reflection of the circumcenter of the original quadrilateral in the anti-center.
The anti-center of the orthic quadrilateral is the same as the anti-center of the original quadrilateral, and so the orthocenters of the triangles formed by the orthic quadrilateral are the vertices of the original cyclic quadrilateral.

 Illuminations: Diagonals to Quadrilaterals
Launch the Diagonals to Quadrilaterals I applet, either as a whole-class activity or as pairs of students working on a computer.
Ask students what types of quadrilaterals are possible, and have them list the possibilities on their whiteboards.
Students may see that the initial shape is a general quadrilateral; others may drag the points to create a kite, a rhombus, or even what appears to be a square.
