    Default difference between few and a few

    What is the difference between these two sentences

    I have few friends.
    I have a few friends.

    Does the first sentences mean that I do not have any friend?

    Please define the usage of these two words in detail.
    thanks

    I have few friends => you have not many friends (eg. you're not popular; people usually have more friends than you)
    I have a few friends => you have some friends (nothing out of the way; you just say you have several friends).

    I have quite a few friends => you have a lot of friends.
