Verbs not used in the passive
Not all verbs can have passive forms. Passive structures are not possible with intransitive verbs like die, cry or arrive, which cannot have objects.
Some transitive verbs, too, are seldom used in the passive. Most of these verbs refer to states, not actions. Examples are: have, lack, resemble, suit etc.
Some prepositional verbs are mainly used in the active. Examples are: walk into, agree with.
