Yes, there is such a list, but I can´t remember it. So, I searched in Practical English Usage, by Michael Swan:

- like, love, hate, prefer, begin, start, attempt, intend, continue, can´t bear, be accustomed to, and be committed to: followed by both -ing forms and infinitives without a great difference of meaning

- stop, remenber, forget, go on, regret, advise, allow, permit, forbid, see, watch, hear, try, mean, learn, teach, and stop: can be followed by both -ing forms and infinitives BUT have different meanings or usages. So, be careful when they appear.

Details? Take a look at the above mentioned source.
