Is it better to change “wash” into “washing”?

Please take a look at the following quote:

“Happiness is a fatality,” wrote the poet Rimbaud. I remember being somewhat puzzled when I first read that line, and then feeling a sense of ease and liberation wash over me. Turning the idea of happiness on its head had suddenly made me very happy.

Crazy Wisdom Saves the World Again! by Wes "Scoop" Nisker, page 69.

Is it better to change wash into washing? Because I think this would be more suitable according to grammatical rules.


Either can be correct. There’s a very subtle difference in meaning, but neither is generally better than the other.
