English structures, help

Basic structure:

subject + verb + object + infinitive with 'to'


John advised Susan to be very quiet

Susan is the object of the verb advised and the subject of the verb to be. Which of the verbs below cannot be used in such a structure?

ask, beg, forbid, instruct, invite, order, persuade, remember, remind, say, teach, urge, warn.

I think it's 'beg': He used to beg for money. But I'm not sure at all. Am I wrong? Thanks.
