    Even though some native speakers will find the infinitive complement marginal or a little jarring or rather formal, it is a very well attested usage, and you can use it or in reading, whichever you prefer. Others may feel the same about the prepositional phrase with -ing, or that it is rather informal. But it too is very well attested. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Aug 13 '17 at 13:24
