What are your requirements exactly?

You already have a large range, you can just divide them into separate /24 subnets ...
and so on until

Same goes for the other range
and so until

Of course you can just take 4 /24 subnets and re-divide the leftover into larger or even smaller subnets...
The result is 32 network ranges from each. You can choose any 4 of them. I have listed the first 4 of each range

I want to divide and only in four subnet each. How can I do that?

You can not! The way things are working in IP addressing is the one we've presented
You can have 4 subnets for each but will be /21, not /24

I'd stay with the approach I mentioned, this leaves room for much more subnets when needed...

Otherwise you'd need to really change the entire subnet and loose a lot of network... Like a /22 or a /21

OK.  You've stated two different objectives - likely unintentionally.  It seems that dividing into 4 subnets is most likely - as in "divide the entirety into 4 subnets of equal size".  (You can have a bunch of subnets and they don't all have to be the same size).

So, matrix8086 has given the answer to that question.  
/19 has 8192 addresses.  So, 4 subnets of equal size that spans that entire address space would be 2048 addresses each or /21.

There is nothing "better" about smaller subnets unless there are other issues or requirements or constraints that you haven't mentioned.  So I would stick with /21 until more is revealed.
