Герундий или инфинитив
1)  Если значение глагола остается неизменным, герундий обычно
употребляется для обозначения идеи действия или повторяющегося действия,
а инфинитив — для обозначения однократного действия. Например:
He began writing to us when he was still a schoolboy. — Он начал писать нам еще
когда был школьником.
He sat down at the table and began to write. — Он сел за стол и начал писать.

2)  В некоторых случаях, при неизменном значении глагола-сказуемого,

герундий обозначает предшествующее действие (по отношению к сказуемому),
а инфинитив — последующее.
К этой группе относятся глаголы remember, forget, regret. Например:
I’ve completely forgotten talking to him. — Я совсем забыл, что говорил с ним.
Don’t forget to drop the letter. — Не забудь опустить письмо в ящик.
