    "a little" means "some" while "little" means "almost no"
    so do "a few" and "few"(use for countable nouns)
    For examples:
    I have little sugar(=I have no sugar)
    I have a little sugar(=I have some sugar)

    I have few friends(I have no friend)
    I have a few friends( I have some friends)
